Reading Signal Works Shunters.
Not the best of images, but impossible to repeat now. A chance visit to Reading Diesel Depot on November 15th 1981, found all the shunters involved with the nearby Signal Works. Nearest in the line up was withdrawn 97020, a Ruston & Hornsby 88DS, works number 408493 dating from 1957, Barclay 0-4-0 Class 06, 06002 was next, it had travelled down from Scotland as a source of spares for the third in the line up, Class 06, 97804 (ex 06003) which was the replacement loco for 97020.
