The Shunter is responsible for coupling and uncoupling engines from trains, using a long pole with a hook on the end, called a shunter's pole. When there is no shunter around, a fireman or a workman usually does the job. Shunters have appeared more regularly since the twelfth season.


A North Western Railway shunter's uniform consists of blue trousers, a black tie, a white shirt, a blue jacket, with brown overalls and either a brown cap or hardhat, identical to the uniform of a standard workman.
