The Class 08 is a 0-6-0 diesel-electric shunting locomotive. About 996 of these locomotives were produced between 1952 and 1962 by British Railways. They replaced the steam 0-6-0 and other lots of other steam shunting locomotives and could be seen all over the Uk in goods yards and stations.They were also used on local freight trains and to bring carriges into and out of stations.

This 08 is in Harry Needel Railroad Comany Limted colours. This 08 had no connecting rod or buffers in 2006. I think this 08 is still used for spot hire.

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Barrow hill engine shed

Today Virgin East Coast, Grand Central and DRS are just some of the names on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
