An Irish built LM400 pulling milled peat

During the 1990s Bord na Móna realised that their locomotives were becoming increasingly obsolete and that replacements were needed. So at Bord na Móna's own works production began on a new kind of locomotive.

Technical DataEdit

The locomotives come in two wheel arrangements, 0-4-0DH (diesel hydraulic, no coupling rods) and B (Diesel hydraulic, coupling rods) They are fitted with automatic transmissions and have a top speed of 11 m.p.h


These newer locomotives are often used on the ash trains from peat/biomass fired power plants and on milled peat trains.
