My favourite class! I was only able to experience these locos in the last 20 months of their lives. In that time I was able to ride behind 35 different members of the class and have been smitten for life! After their final withdraw date in January '85 I satisfied myself with D200 on various tours around the country until her swansong in April '88. Since then it has been visits to preserved lines and mainline tours with 40145. I have been a member of the Class Forty Preservation Society since 1991.
