Class 03, 03079 at Sandown.
Transferred to the Isle of Wight in 1984, as a replacement for 05001, 03079 had to have its cab roof reduced in height to fit the tight Island loading gauge. The loco spent most of its time on the Isle of Wight in the sidings at Sandown with its entourage of departmental wagons, as seen here in July 1993. Built at Doncaster in 1960 as D2079, the loco worked from various North Eastern Region Depots, until it was moved to Eastleigh in 1983, where the cab height was modified before transfer across the Solent.
