This is a standard gauge diesel locomotive built in 1952 by Baguley of Burton-on-Trent for Ind Coope, brewers of Double Diamond. This explains the two diamonds on the radiator grille. It later worked at a quarry in Wirksworth and was initially preserved on the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway. It came to Bickleigh in 1998 and is in working order.
