3698 Repulse is an example of the Hunslett austerity class of industrial locomotives. It was built in 1950 and saw service for the National Coal board for 25 years before being withdrawn in 1975. It was purchased by the LHR in 1976 and restored and was operating the train service on the day we visited.
