    UKIN: Internal Combustion: Kent Construction

    Diesel Shunter

    Kent Construction & Engineering Co. Ltd

    Kent Construction and Engineering Co Ltd of Victoria Works, Victoria Road, Ashford, Kent are best known for purchasing many former World War I War Department Light Railway locomotives at the end of the war, both narrow-gauge and standard gauge, and reselling them after repair/reconditioning using the "Planet" trademark. It went on to design its own locomotives, and one of the new designs was shown at the Public Works, Roads & Transport Exhibition at Islington in November 1925 by Honeywill Brothers.

    The railway locomotive business was clearly still seen as attractive, and two of the directors of Honeywill Brothers Ltd, F.C.Hibberd and D.A. Dwyer, created the new company FC Hibberd & Company who acquired the locomotive rights and the entire locomotive stock of Kent Construction and Engineering Company. They continued to use the "Planet" trademark and sub-contracted manufacture to two different companies before getting their own works in Park Royal, London in 1932. Hibberd locomotives continued in production until 1968.
