LT loco L11 used as the Acton Works shunter was built in 1964 by joining together two halves of standard stock cars. Air reservoirs and brake valves were removed from the underframe and placed in the former passenger compartment. The four traction motors were retained. The Acton end of the loco was fitted with couplers at both tube and surface stock height and a special window in the cab door for improved visibility when shunting. The loco was fitted with sanding gear for hauling stock up the steep gradient to Acton Town station and painted maroon. Like other stock in the engineer’s fleet it was painted yellow in the early 1980s.
L11 is now on static display adjacent to Epping Signal Cabin.
