History
   
  Her current engine is an inboard diesel made by National Diesel in 1935. She was sold by GUCCC to Stanton & Staveley Ironworks at Ilkeston in 1942; sold to Stuarts & Lloyds at Coombeswood Tube Works at Halesowen in 1947. She was afterwards taken to Harris at Netherton and shortened to tug length and used to tow day boats in and around Birmingham. Name changes have followed changes in ownership and include VESTA NO.96, STANTON 61 and TUG NO.3. She is currently based at Shardlow, Derbyshire.Photo¬†GUCC I-Z
