1048 awaits her move into preservation. She is inside the works at Newton Abbot. No loco had been in there since the works closed. She was put in there for security. But as a young local lad i got to here about it and cycled down to Newton Abbot after school. I new the loco shed very well but had never been inside the old works. It was locked up good and proper apart from the window to the right of the red coach, if you look closely you can see it is open. There was good access to the over head crane gantry from which I took both pictures. I cant remember the exact date but I know she was withdrawn in Feb 77 and I was at School. As it is light enough for me to take a picture indoors at about 1700hrs I estimate May June or July 1977.
