Brand new Drewry (later class 04) 204 hp 0-6-0 diesel mechanical shunter D2287 on the harbourside at Dover in May 1960. It was introduced to B.R. service on 9 April 1960 and allocated to Dover (73H), but subsequently reallocated to Ashford Chart Leacon (73F) on 10 June 1960. It had a very short service life, being withdrawn on 23 June 1968 and cut up at Fratton TMD by Pounds during August 1969. Gordon Edgar collection
