D2024 Rolvenden 27 May 1991

Still wearing its faded yellow paintwork from its previous employment with the Tees & Hartlepool Dock Authority at Middlesbrough, D2024 stands in the sunshine at Rolvenden on the Kent & East Sussex Railway on 27 May 1991. It entered BR service in 1958 and was initially allocated to Lincoln, but it became one of numerous 03s withdrawn before the introduction of TOPS number, so never acquired the 03024 number that was theoretically left vacant for it. After nine years use as a dock shunter it passed into preservation, but little work has been done on it since.
