I borrowed this British diesel design from Eurobricks user ChromeKnight way back in 2011. LDD file included!
About this creation
I made this engine in real life for Christmas of 2011, after making many mods and a major color change to the engine. This model was my introduction to Studs Not On Top (also known as SNOT) and has been very helpful to me over the years.



The rear features three tail-lights. The number of this engine (8311) is the reverse of it's original number, 1138, to better fit with my numbering scheme for my trains.

Fictional background for this diesel:

In 1960, Brick Railway Systems (also known as BRS) was trying to find a good multipurpose (yet small) diesel switcher. It noticed the success of the British Railways ' Class 08 and so BRS asked the English railway if they would be willing to part with some about 10 Class 08's. The British took their time, but responded with one better: Class 09's, which have a higher speed of about 28 Miles per hour. Desperate for relief for their strained steam switchers, BRS said yes, and in April 1963, ten Class 09's made the journey across the Atlantic Ocean to BRS, whereupon they were numbered 8310 to 8320 and painted black with a single red stripe.

Quoting Stephan Niehoff For me it looks to short.
Maybe, maybe not. I Searched "BR Class 09" on wikipedia, and it seems about right for a rod driven diesel of 29 feet in length. But to each their own.
