Originally built in the UK between 1952-1962 the BR Class 08 Switcher (Shunter in the UK) was a diesel electric workhorse that every railway line/yard needed. With a top speed of 15mph and enough power to pack a punch it no doubt justified earning its nickname Gronk. However, modern day changes to the railway meant less need for such a powerhouse and many have since been exported, sold to industrial or heritage railways or converted.
