08696 Swindon 25 Ocotober 1982

Shunters didn't usually stay this clean for long in BR service! Not long after a repaint, 08696 was pictured parked next to the Great Western Mainline at Swindon on 25 October 1982. As it was allocated to Derby at the time, I assume the loco's ex-works condition is a result of a recent overhaul at the nearby Swindon Works.
