First Loco for the Yorkshire Wolds Railway

The Yorkshire Wolds Railway has taken delivery of its first locomotive at the site of its proposed Visitor Centre.

The diesel-hydraulic shunter, purchased from a site near Doncaster, was delivered to the YWR site near Wetwang.

The locomotive was built in 1979 by GEC Traction, a British company founded in 1972 but which could trace its lineage right back to Robert Stephenson & Co., the first railway locomotive company in the world. GEC has since been subsumed into the French Alstom company. Carrying works number 5576, the locomotive was one of only three of this design built for Shotton Steelworks. Its career has seen it operate around the country, including at the Clydesdale Steelworks in Glasgow and on a number of contracts while owned by the Tarmac construction company. Most recently, it was owned by Trackwork Ltd and based at HMP Doncaster where it was used to help train prisoners in engineering.

    There are a lot of trusted online and offline online share dealers nowadays which provide a really good price of a fundamental trading. If you’re the sort of person who’s interested in stock exchanges and even gets more interested in purchasing and selling shares should you already have some, then ideally, you need a stockbroker. It’s possible to say, it’s a stock, shares or equity. – Michael Mann
