??

The shunting locomotive used here spent most of its time at Rochester Yard but could also be found stabled at Gillingham particularly at weekends. A regular observer in the early 1980’s says that then the normal pattern was for it to be in Rochester Yard Monday to Fiday making occasional trips to the staion with parcels vans or loops for freight. On Friday evenings it would move to Gillingham Sidings/Depot from where exchanges occurred with fresh locomotives arriving on Sunday mornings. The requirement appears to have ceased in mid 1983. If submitting a sighting please put a comment as to the location observed e.g. Rochester Yard, Gillingham, Chatham Docks.
