D2420 at Ferryhill, 13th August 1968   David Mant

First allocated to Kittybrewster in February 1959. Transferred to Aberdeen Ferryhill in September 1967. It was transferred to Polmadie in June 1971, Eastfield in March 1972, Dunfermline Townhill in March 1979 and Dundee in October 1980 from where it was withdrawn in April 1981 when the Harbour duty ceased. It subsequently moved to Reading where it was renumbered 97804. Reputedly it was intended for use at the Signal Works although only three sightings of it there have so far been submitted, these being in 1982 & 1983. Although reputedly rarely used at the Signal Works, lack of sightings elsewhere at that time suggests it may have actually seen regular use at the Works for at least 18 months. Thus, sightings in 1982, 1983 & 1984 of this locomotive are particularly sought. Following use at the Signal Works it spent time in store at Reading Depot and Old Oak Common Depot before being disposed of for scrap. Fortunately it was retreived from the scrapyard and has now been preserved.
