    Despite it appearing at many open days, it seems there aren't many photos of this in anybody's collections!

    15 January 2004 - AC Loco Group

    The nearest cab from this loco is now preserved (at Barrow Hill - 2004) and retains some of its Load Bank controls and displays.

    Before arriving at barrow hill the preserved cab was painted back into electric blue livery and renumbered back to E3044. It now has its own flatrol wagon.

    Any idea of the ID of the van? It appears to be an (ex-) Fruit van to diagram 1/233. Only 300 were built (3 lots of 100 wagons each) making this pretty rare. Furthermore, I found a couple of photos of vehicles from the first lot and they had 3-part pressed steel ends whereas this has 2-part pressed steel ends, so I guess this is from either the 2nd or 3rd lot. This puts its original number in the range B875650-B875849.

    There seems to be only one survivor on its wheels, B875760 (041877) at Quainton. Plus half a dozen grounded bodies.

    At December 1979 the survivors of this fleet numbered 17 which were DB875083, 875120/188, 875294, 875344/388/399, 875409, 875635/649/654/662, 875731/759/760/763 and 875835. In addition B875732 had recently transferred to IU stock. I think the photo appears to show 875294 but I may be wrong. I hope this helps.
