73002 in line near Lydney Jcn crossing, 17/5/03. photo B.Thomas

002 moved from Kirkdale, Liverpool, in the first week of October 2002. The loco is completely non-operational having been heavily stripped internally hence it will be used for storage only. However, to keep the loco looking the part, an early opportunity was taken to repaint it into Large-logo BR Blue. Unfortunately, vandals have taken to using the cab windows as targets for stone-throwing practice.

data panel (former class 33?)  May 2003
The data panel as stuck to 73002 appears to have been on a class 33 in a previous life. Unless the 73 has had a major rebuild at some point....
