Ruston 245033, built new for the Tottenham & District Gas Company, was delivered to their Tottenham Gasworks site on 2 October 1947. Liveried in the company’s distinctive ‘Panhard Red’, the locomotive was the first diesel to be used at the site and remained there until the end of coal carbonisation in March 1972, when rail traffic at the site ceased. No.12 was finally sold for scrap in 1974.
