47358 shunts at Millbrook, 24th January 2005

Brrrrrrrrh! A look at a numbing day when Millbrook was still an active container depot.

47358 was new as D1877 on 11th June 1965, allocated to 41A Tinsley. Renumbered 47358 in March 1974. By this time in 2005 it was a yard shunter at Southampton, and entered storage in March that year. It was painted up for, and ran, at the Mid-Hants Railway Diesel Gala in May 2005, then remained in storage at Maritime, until removal in August 2007 when it went to T.J.Thomson, Stockton for disposal, completed in March 2009
