BR Class 04

BR Class 04

The Tasmanian V Class, New Zealand Ds Class, and British Class 04 locomotives were built by Drewry Car Co as industrial shunting locomotives. These locomotives were shipped all over the world for Standard and Cape Gauges, with a range of customisations.

United Kingdom

The first four British Rail Class 04 locomotives were built with skirts for operating on Tramways, with a total of 142 built for BR in four batches from 1952 - 1962. The class was distributed throughout the BR system, and were used until 1972, with D2289 in service until 2012.

21 have been preserved across the UK and many can be seen operating at heritage railways.
