D2860 was one of 20 built in Sheffield by the Yorkshire Engine Company, powered by a 170 hp (127 kW) Rolls-Royce C6NFL 6-cylinder diesel engine, with hydraulic transmission. There are currently 7 survivors of this class. This one is used to move exhibits around the Museum.
The locomotive in front of D2860 is an 0-4-0ST called "Teddy" which was built by Peckett & Sons Ltd as no. 2012 in Bristol, in 1942 (see picture 15630).
Beyond "Teddy" is Class 08 no. 08911 0-6-0 diesel shunter "Matey" (see picture 15631). This diesel-electric shunter was built at Horwich in 1962 with a 400 hp engine. It has both air and vacuum braking.
