According to The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways, the Slate Quarry near Skarloey was taken over by the Ministry of Defence for the storage of ammunition after its closure. The MoD uses their own engine to shunt the sidings in the quarry, a black electric-powered engine described as "beetle-like." Due to the highly secretive nature of its work, the engine has never been seen, and its basis is unknown.
