80.HP LM176

Bord na Móna finally decided on the locomotive they required, by building it themselves. Following the design of their Ruston prototype LM 175, they constructed LM 176, which weighed 8 tons and had an 80 HP Ford engine. This machine was put to work at Derrygreenagh Works near Rochfordbridge.
