Class 03, 03179 at Ipswich.
Complete with a runner truck, Class 03, 03179 stands between duties in Ipswich Yard on the 28th April 1980. Anonymous amongst the class 03 fleet at the time, fame was to come when it was transferred to the Isle of Wight in 1988. 03179 was painted in Network South East Livery at Ryde in 1989. The loco became surplus to requirements in 1996, and was shipped back to the mainland for use at Hornsey Depot in North London. Now the only operational class 03 on the former national network, it is in FCC livery.
