To those Interested, 155 and 185 would be Dean Goods. I can't put to it immediately so I may be wrong but 155 and 185 were attached to 8th Royal Engineers, Railway Operating Division, before being transferred to 2 RE, examples which had travelled "The long way round" Via the Mediterranean campaigns and Italy. With them being scrap metal back home, several of the shipped out Deans would be held over longer to solve lack of shunters, though since they were scrap to begin with. It could be noted on other RE DG locomotives; the already worn reversing gear was, by 1944, worn to the point where a stiff breeze would contribute more to which way the locomotive would go, so they often were'nt the most reliable shunters. They would be there with 143, which would be at that point in it's German guise of 53.7607.
