Dubs crane tank No. 4101 is an 0-4-0CT crane locomotive manufactured by Dubs and Co. in 1901, Glasgow for the Shelton Iron and Steel Works, Stoke on Trent.
A 'cane tank'is a type of steam locomotive upon which a steam-powered crane is mounted, producing a machine which is capable of performing as both a shunter and a mobile crane.
On withdrawal from service in 1968, No. 4101 was privately preserved at the East Somerset Railway in 1970, although it was not moved to Somerset until 1973.
returned to service in 1977 and performed useful work around the railway until 1986, when it was withdrawn for overhaul.
The overhaul ESR never happened, and 4101 was sold to private owners at the Foxfield Light Railway, near Stoke-on-Trent.
