    Formerly 08600, this was used as a depot shunter at Slade Green depot for shunting locos, EMUs and DMUs present for repair at the CM&EE workshops.

    I'm hoping the live rails were isolated before this family of two adults and three children started walking around!

    Looks like an open day to me so yes probably a good guess they would be isolated!

    Cannon Street event was certainly on 23-08-86. I can't remember if it was on two days though.

    This was the open day held in 1982. If the third rail was live I probably wouldn't be here now.
