Ex BR 03012 at Snailwell.
Still in full BR blue livery, and carrying its TOPS number 03012, the yards Class 03 diesel shunter is at the rear of three stripped BR Mark 1 First Class Corridor Coaches, ready for positioning in the firing tunnel at Kings Scrapyard at Snailwell on the 29th November 1980. A rake of Mark 1 Sleeping Cars await their fate on the right. As happens with many scrapyard shunting locomotives, 03012 found it a hazardous place to work, as the loco was broken up for scrap here in 1991.
