60006 Swarkestone 16 December 2000

60006 Scunthorpe Ironmaster became the first Class 60 the be scrapped, when it was cut up by Ron Hull of Rotherham at Toton in January 2020. It was noteworthy for carrying British Steel blue, and latterly Corus silver liveries. In both guises it seemed to avoid my camera! On the few occasions that I did see it in these colour schemes, it was usually running light engine. This very poor quality image shows it passing Swarkestone on 16 December 2000, still in ex-works condition, just days after being repainted from blue to silver.
