Number 5, or 'Little Ruston' as it is better known at the ALR, is possibly the most useful and versitile loco in the fleet. It is easy to drive, very powerful and air braked so it can haul passenger trains. It can regularly be seen hauling passenger trains or shunting about in the yard, although not in the rain for obvious reasons!
