45012 Baulking 22 October 1983

45012 was immediately identifiable from a distance in the mid 1980s by virtue of the huge dent in the front end. This can clearly be seen here as it heads west at Baulking (between Didcot and Swindon) on 22 October 1983 with an engineers train including both new and recovered track panels. 45012 was withdrawn in July 1988 and after languishing at Tinsley was finally moved to Glasgow in March 1992, where it was cut up by MC Metals. This location has become considerably more overgrown in recent years, although thankfully the situation is nowhere near as bad as the view in the other direction.
