01552 Long Marston 29 October 2009

1966 built Thomas Hill 0-6-0 diesel hydraulic 01552 (originally numbered 167V and built for ICI Billingham) moves slowly forward in the Motorail Logistics depot at Long Marston on 29 October 2009. It is moving the Mk 3 HST Network Rail New Measurement Train coach and barrier vehicles that had just been brought in by 31454 as the 1Z06 09:00 Derby RTC to Long Marston. Note the amount of stock stored in the yard, with various Class 20s, 31s, & 37s visible in the background. The severe speed restriction is a wise move given the very poor state of some of the track.
