The Wagonmaster

The Wagonmaster

Hunslet built the “the Wagonmaster” to Bord na Móna‘s specifications. Wagonmaster Numbers LM 199 to LM 252 came on stream before 1965, when Bord na Móna purchased ten more 28 HP Deutz locos (LM 253 to LM 262). Between 1962 (LM 199) and 1986 (LM 148) Bord na Móna purchased a total of about 140 Hunslet Wagonmasters. Overtime a small number of these (e.g LM 210, LM 233, LM 295) have been modified by Bord na Móna to incorporate hydraulic transmission.
