09015 Ebbw Junction 24 July 1996

09015 rests at Ebbw Junction on 24 July 1996 between spells of work in Alexandra Dock Yard. In common with all the original build of Class 09s, 09015 spent all its early life on the Southern Region, only moving to Cardiff Canton in March 1989. It is seen here in the drab engineers grey livery, a shade of paint that if this view is anything to go by was also used extensively to paint various lineside buildings, to say nothing of signaling equipment cabinets (top of picture)!
