Heritage Railway magazine follower Rob sent this to us from before Christmas. He said: “A new locomotive arrived at The GWSR from The Barry Tourist Railway in the form of English Electric Type 1 Class 20 20228 [D8128].”
“It carried the orange and white livery of the CFD (Compagnie de Chemins de Fer Départementaux) whilst working in France before returning back home.”
“It was built in 1965 with a works number of 3599. It is pictured outside the Diesel Shed at Toddington on December 19, 2020. It is looking in very good condition and freshly painted.” Thankyou Rob!
