Second of Rosebud Kitmaster''s 1959 releases was their boxy 350 hp Diesel Electric Shunter (or yard switch engine), engineered to the United Kingdom’s standard OO (1/76) scale. Short-lived, but critically acclaimed, Rosebud Kitmaster kits of predominately British and European prototypes were, and still are, esteemed by countless model railroaders. The Kitmaster Diesel Electric Shunter was, in its day, an impressive model, as were all the Kitmasters.

These babies were driving around here in Holland aswell, in either a dark green livery, or a more modern grey/ yellow one.

I wonder if anyone ever made decals for those ?

They ran as series 600 here
