Sentinel Waggon Works Ltd was a British company based in Shrewsbury that manufactured steam-powered road vehicles and railway locomotives. They were powered by a high pressure vertical boiler and, unusually for steam locomotives, had a gearbox.

'Sentinels' were manufactured until the 1950s and many survived in use for a long while thereafter - I well remember seeing them around the Liverpool docks and a number of examples have been preserved [ LinkExternal link ]. 'Elizabeth', shown here, is a 1931 Sentinel DG6P, which translates into "double geared, six wheeler, pneumatic tyres". See also . . . .
