Description
The British Rail Class 13 was a type of diesel-electric shunting locomotive. The type was designed in 1965 because of the need to provide more powerful shunters for the Tinsley Marshalling Yard. Because of Tinsley's status as a hump yard, it was not possible to use a single locomotive owing to the risk of grounding. So, to achieve the required power, a pair of Class 08 shunters were permanently coupled in 'master and slave' formation, with the slave unit having had its cab removed. Both units were then ballasted to improve traction. Initially coupled cab-to-cab, it was found more practical to couple master nose to slave cab.

This item uses meshes from BritishTrains' Class 08 under the Creative Commons 4.0 ANSA Licence which permits the user to reuse the work, in part or in whole, with recognition to the original author, therefore, this model must also be licenced as such, which is why a .blend file allowing users to use this model has provided in res/documents of said mod.

I wonder Why no one has made a replica of one of these.

Oh I remember reading about the dual shunters at Tinsley. Thanks again for these lovely shunters.
