D3937 Norchard 16 July 2017

D3937 Gladys, pictured at the Dean Forest Railway's headquarters at Norchard on 16 July 2017. D3937 was built in 1960, initially being allocated to Royston. With the implementation of TOPS in 1974, it became 08769. It was withdrawn in 1989, and after a period in store at various locations, it ended up at Long Marston in April 1990. From there it moved to the nearby Moreton-in-Marsh Fire Service Collage. It stayed there for nearly a decade, during which time it was sold for scarp, a sale which was thankfully cancelled. It moved to the Forest of Dean in 2000.
