Vehicle history

This vehicle was purchased from Arriva Merseyside where it had been in use as a garage shunter. It has been bought mainly to act as a yard shunter at our premises in Arbroath. The tug is rated to tow up to 30 tons.
 

In preservation

Some work is required on the engine and exhaust before the tug is returned to working order. The paintwork is also receiving attention.
