Les is a unique Lister diesel locomotive, which was built in 1960 by R.A. Lister for Mr J. Lemon-Burton, of West Sussex. When he died, the engine went to the Bredgar and Wormshill Railway in Kent. Here it gained the number 21 (its number at Ravenglass is ICL 10) and the present name and livery.

The engine's top speed is 7 mph and is used by the fitters for minor shunting activities in the confines of Ravenglass station. The livery is that of Lister unlined green with a cream and black stripe at the front.
