    Sounds basically like a YMC (Yard Movement Controller). There’s an external one at my depot who came from the buses, all the rest are ex BR shunters.

    Mmm. Mentioned 3 posts above. You could also say it’s to move trains around a yard. Trains run on rails. There are rails in the yard.

    Basically, it’s to do with trains. Moving them about. Not by hand, though.
