08801 Penzance 4 May 1991

Penzance's resident shunter, 08801, rests between duties at the Cornish terminus on 4 May 1991. New to St Blazey in 1960, D3969 (as it was then), was reallocated to several depots in northern England, before returning St Blazey in 1984. Its move to Laira a few years later resulted in it being outbased at Penzance. The year before this photo was taken it was damaged in a collision with 47538, whilst en-route from Long Rock to Penzance.
