Class 08 ID - Dagenham
Could someone please help me ID a Class 08 that I have recently seen.

On Monday 2nd January I drove past Dagenham and looking over the fly over saw a black class 08 with white numbers. However I was too far away to be sure of the identity. I thought it may have been 08546 but it was too far away to be sure.

Can anyone confirm for me.

Many thanks

Although there has been no posts on this topic for some time, the database has continued to expand as will be seen from the figures in the last post ...

There are now over 5,900 entries with 1,436 pictures

I know that this is still a rather small amount with the number of locos involved, but I am still working on the project and hopefully the information in place is useful to some ...

Not had much free time with a great deal of other things taking over life as I know it ... however, the database has been added to slowly and I thought that I would try and revive this section that I started ..

1960 - D5094 (24094) almost finished

The shunter at Telford numbered D2971 is ex industrial 1952 Ruston 0-4-0DM Class 165DS No. 313394

Does anyone here have any information of where it worked, what colours it was in, what number it carried etc, etc.

This loco may be getting a repaint soon and would be nice to take it back to its original condition
D2051 and d2280 are visible from passing trains outside the shed at Holt
I've been looking for infomation on this engine for months, last time I checked it was numbered 10256, but I believe it's now numbered 01572. I'm looking for the locaiton of this engine because it has a personal conneciton to me. My father worked at Croft Quarry with the engine. If anyone has infomaiton on the location on this engine I'd greatly appretiate it.
Happy New Year to everyone

Sunday 1st January saw the first of the AFRPS 2017 brake-van tours around the British Steel complex at Scunthorpe.

Eight hardy souls ventured out for the trip and were rewarded by the sight of AE 1919/24 ‘Cranford’ steaming its way up the incline to the Frodingham platform with a single brake-van in tow. The weather was awful and the freezing mist, the driving rain and the steam produced by Cranford meant that photography was pretty well useless.

We set off pa ...
