45058 Gloucester 6 July 1985

With the unmistakable tower of Gloucester Cathedral in the background, a grime encrusted 45058 rests on Horton Road depot in the company of Class 117 DMU B433 (51371, 59509 & 51413) on 6 July 1985. This loco managed to last almost to the end of Class 45 operations, being withdrawn in September 1987. Like many of its class it ended up dumped at March, before eventually being moved to Scotland, where it was finally cut up by MC Metals, Glasgow in 1994.
