ADB966508 along with ADB966507 at Lincoln East Holmes in May1975. At this time both retained the 'A' prefix to their number.   Dave Glossop

Folowing the departure of ADB966507 to March in early 1976, ADB966508 was left on its own at Lincoln East Holmes as seen in this photograph taken on 28th March 1976. By this time the 'A' prefix had been removed.   Dave Glossop

Converted at Doncaster Depot in 1973/1974. It was initially located at Doncaster Depot but after a short time moved to Lincoln. Sightings of this at Lincoln are particularly sought in order to establish exactly where at Lincoln this was berthed during its period there. In early 1976 it along with ADB966507 lost its 'A' prefix. However, by early 1977 it had gained a 'T' prefix. Scrapped at Doncaster Works in 1979.

This 1977 picture shows ADB966508 now carrying the 'T' prefix at Lincoln East Holmes.   Dave Glossop

When this picture was taken on 25th March 1979 any intentions of using TDB966508 as a snowplough were no more. It had by then had its plough blade removed.   Dave Glossop
