LMS Sentinel 7164

From TrainSpottingWorld, for Rail fans everywhere

London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Sentinel No. 7164, (later 7184 and under British Railways, 47184) was a small shunting locomotive.


Built in 1931 by Sentinel as Works No. 8593, it was taken into LMS stock in 1932 as 7164. It was to a design that was also built for use industry, but unique to the LMS, though the LMS did have other Sentinels of different types. It was renumbered 7184 in 1939 and after nationalisation in 1948, renumbered 47184 by British Railways. 47184 was withdrawn in 1955 and subsequently scrapped.


47184 was not preserved. However, a similar locomotive that worked in industry, works No. 7232 Ann was in 2003 painted to masquerade as 7164 on the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. The prototype only carried unlined black livery but Ann was given lined black livery and retained her nameplate.
