I'm not a Train buff but this is one of the many engines at my local Station.

D8188 is a BR Class 20 Bo-Bo diesel-electric locomotive, otherwise known as an English Electric Type 1. 228 of these locomotives were built between 1957 and 1968. Weighing 73 tonnes and delivering 1,000 horsepower, they were designed to work light mixed freight traffic at up to 75 mph. Members of the class are nicknamed “Choppers” because of the distinctive engine beat under load which resembles the sound of a helicopter.

A beautiful class 20. I wish they were still in use. Great image Garry.

Quote: I wish they were still in use

There are a few still in main line service. I like the lamp post stood on the buffer beam Grin
A few steps back and to the right (if possible) would have solved the problem.

Frowned upon standing on the track at SVR.
