Looked into the background of the NSU class and it turns out they're actually sister locos to the CIÉ B101s, having also been constructed by the Birmingham Railway Carraige & Wagon Company. The NSU class locos had serial numbers ranging from DEL1-DEL14, whilst the Irish Sulzers were DEL20-DEL31. Like the Irish locos, they were powered by Sulzer 6LDA28 engines, and had an A1A-A1A configuration, but used Crompton Parkinson traction motors rather than Metro-Vick.
