An afternoon at the museum XV

Diesel power. The nice thing about the museum is that many of the locomotives and rolling stock still get used for steam specials. The large turntable allows many of the working exhibits access to the rail network.

Powerful little beasts, many still doing valuable work today in the 21st century
These diesel shunters are powerful engines. Pure function!
You've actually made a diesel shunter look very artistic John.
