D3994 – 08826

Diesel Dilemmas – top page

Acquired as a source of spares. Initially stored at the East Somerset Railway, Cranmore from October 2003. There is a reference to it then moving to Merehead Stone Terminal in June 2004. Interestingly there are no sightings of it at Merehead until the following summer but it was certainly at Whatley Quarry in February 2005. Thus, sightings of this locomotive between April 2004 and July 2005 will be of particular interest. In October 2008 it moved to the Mid-Hants Railway on loan. Late in 2010 it was moved to the Eastleigh Works site as a source of spares in connection with the overhaul of 08032 and 08933 and was scrapped there in April 2011.
