Ex 84009, ADB968021 at Crewe Basford Hall Yard.
Mobile Load Bank Locomotive ADB968021 was on display at Crewe Basford Hall Yard on the 27th August 1995. Built by North British in Glasgow in 1960 as E3044, the class 84 was withdrawn from service and converted to a mobile load bank in 1979. Reliability issues saw some members of the class stored during the late 1960s - E3044 became a travelling exhibition loco, and amongst other locations, was displayed at Preston in 1970 as an example of modern motive power for the forthcoming electrification!
