The Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST is a class of steam locomotive designed by Hunslet Engine Company for shunting.
The class became the standard British shunting locomotive during the Second World War, and production continued until 1964 at various locomotive manufacturers.
The 48150 class were built for the Guest Keen Baldwins Iron & Steel Company in 1937, being an enlarged version of a design dating from 1923.
These developed into the 50550 class of 1941-42, with various modifications.
At the outbreak of the Second World War, the War Department had initially chosen the LMS 'Jinty' 3F 0-6-0T as its standard shunting locomotive,
but was persuaded by Hunslet that a simplified version of their more modern 50550 design would be more suitable.
The first locomotive was completed at their Leeds works at the start of 1943.
