Two Class 08s at Eastleigh T&RSMD, 5th April 2021


08810 was built at BR Derbty as D3978, entering traffic in July 1960. Currently named RICHARD J WENHAM EASTLEIGH DEPOT December 1989 - July 1999, this name previously being borne by 08804 and 08442.

The latter, 08442, is still extant at the T&RSMD, but seems rather the worse for wear. Built as D3557 at BR Derby, and entered traffic in November 1958.
