Hunslet Engine Company 9346-9351

These industrial narrow gauge shunters were the last locomotives built at the Hunslet Engine Company's Jack Lane Works. The works in Leeds had, since 1864, built thousands of steam and later diesel shunters mostly for industrial use. These final locomotives were built for the tunnelling of the Jubilee Line Extension project in East London. The Jack Lane Works closed in 1995.

They were 4 wheel diesel hydraulic narrow gauge shunters to 610mm gauge. A couple have been preserved. 9347, named Peter Wood, is preserved at the Leighton Buzzard Light Railway as one of the line's diesel "thunderbirds" ready to take over if one of the steam locomotives has a problem, as well as perform other duties on the line. 9351 is preserved at the Statfold Barn Railway in original condition.
