I am trying to research the history of an RE Railway Diesel loco that was shipped to Suez in 1943. The number was 37, or later 70037. 0-4-0 153 hp Diesel Shunter. Built by Drewry Car Company in 1941 for the Ministry of Supply. Part of a batch of 20 built. 4 of which were actually landed on Juno beach post DDay the remaining 11 were shipped into Cherbourg in Sept 44. http://www.stichting162.nl/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/D-day-landing.jpg 37 has survived and is currently stored on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Pickering N Yorks. http://www.yorkareagroup.co.uk/wp-content/gallery/plant/thumbs/thumbs_16.jpg We believe that it returned to UK in 47 and was sold ex Kings Newton near Derby. Can anyone supply unit details that it would have come under? Any detail of operations in Suez? Any history of any of the locos? The other locos in France were involved in rail and bridge reconstruction in the Caen area and supply depot work. 5 more locos were shipped out to the Middle East in 1952 any detail on these would also be welcomed.
