DB968016 (ex D5508 – 31008)

Diesel Dilemmas – top page

Converted to ETS generating unit in 1980 for use in the GE area. It is debatable how much use it actually saw as no observations of it anywhere other than at Stratford have so far been submitted. It is though possible that it was used at Thornton Fields Carriage Sidings, but rarely observed. Scrapped at Crewe in 1985.
