Picture by Trevor Humbey

This loco was the last of the DS88 class to be built at Boultham Works, Lincoln, before all locomotive production was moved to Ironworks just down the road. It is one of 254 built for home and overseas, these locos were built to any of 8 different track gauges depending on customer requirements, this is why the wheels are on the inside of the frames. The loco was delivered new to Booth Row Metals of Rotherham, where it worked for just over 25 years before moving to preservation.
