Eastleigh and Southampton, 27th February 2011

08032 seems to have emerged from Eastleigh Works following repairs. This venerable shunter was built at Derby as 13044 in March 1954. Later D3044 from March 1958 and then 08032, the locomotive was allocated to 75C (Norwood Jct) when new, then at 73C (Hither Green) in 1955, 73F Ashford) in 1959, and 73C again by 1966. Withdrawn in August 1974 and sold to Foster Yeoman. It arrived at Eastleigh from the Mid-Hants, where it had been on loan, on 20th October. Seen here receiving engine repairs in the works on 2nd February. While the locomotive has been dual braked, it currently only appears to have a vacuum hose. Next location is not yet known.

No sign of 47749 outside at Eastleigh.
37417 slumbers at Eastleigh awaiting its future fate (DRS?). New as D6969 in March 1965 allocated to 86A (Cardiff Canton), later 37269 and converted to 37417 between May and November 1985. Stored since December 2008 and status changed on 31st January 2011 to "WNSO locomotives sold, awaiting collection".
