Battlefield transfer for ex-DB ‘58s’
Two Class 58s (58012 and 58023) have moved by road to Shackerstone on the Battlefield Railway.
The locomotives had been stored at Ron Hull Jr’s scrapyard at Rotherham, having been sold for scrap by DB Cargo earlier this year. 58023 will be returned to traffic.
Neither has operated this millennium. EWS withdrew 58012 in September 1999 and 58023 in July 1999.
