That old Explorer loco

Painted into The Explorer livery in early 1993, 961 was only used on the actual train a small number if times before it was added to the freight pool of locos in September that year.

961 continued to survive as the last 930 operating after broad gauge finished, ending up on standard gauge with ASR and then sold to Silverton and then CFCLA before being stored at Islington Workshops as seen here on 18-9-14, 21 years after being painted into the Explorer scheme
