03141

Diesel Dilemmas – top page

For a number of years this locomotive along with 03145 had been stored at Gun Range Farm, Shilton near Coventry. Probably in December 2000, the two locomotives were moved and it now appears both went to the Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh initially before 03141 was then moved to RAF Quedgeley, near Gloucester. Although it has been recorded that 03141 went direct from Shilton to Quedgeley an observation of it at Moreton-in-Marsh in January 2001 appears to confirm that this was not the case. The locomotive left Quedgeley in the spring of 2002 for the Dean Forest Railway.

Dated sightings of the locomotive will be very helpful in confirming when and where the locomotive was actually located.  Please forward sightings to Peter Hall
