Newcastle Central Station - Class 40 (EE Type 4) Diesel Locomotive No. D283 Light Engine c. 1970

English Electric Type 4 (class 40) diesel locomotive No. D283 (later 40083) runs light engine around the back of Newcastle Central Station probably from Gateshead depot (52A) to Heaton MPD.

 

This is another shot rescued from the shoebox and scanned recently and I took this shot as a teenager sometime in 1970. I believe this loco was allocated to Gateshaed (52A) as i seen it very often on my regular Saturday visits to Newcastle Central working the Transpennine services to/from Liverpool Lime Street.

 

This was photographed with an Instamatic 120 camera and is not the best quality as you will see, but I thought it well worth documenting here on Flickr.
