Withdrawn D1070 -'Western Gauntlet' at Swindon Works.
Heavily stripped, Class 52 D1070 -'Western Gauntlet' was awaiting scrapping at Swindon Works in February 1979. The loco was a product of Crewe Works, entering service in October 1963. Withdrawn from Plymouth Laira Depot on the penultimate day of 1976, D1070 acheived 1,312,000 miles in its brief 13 year career, but by the end of May 1979 it ceased to exist.
