The first of 228...

Post by Deepol » Thu Mar 30, 2017 3:11 pm

D8000, the first of the English Electric Type 1 locos introduced in 1957 initially at Devons Road shed at Bow in East London.
228 were eventually built becoming in later years Class 20. Of 1000hp they were at their best coupled in pairs nose to nose.
D8000 became 20050 and as far as I can recall was based at Eastfield in its latter days. It's now part of the National Collection at the NRM.
