800

One of ten broad gauge Bo-Bo shunters built for the South Australian Railways by English Electric at their Rocklea (Brisbane) plant in 1956/57.

 

Photographed at Gillman Yard, Port Adelaide in May 1987, 800 was just a few weeks from being re-numbered 810 due to a new computer system being unable to cope with the end zero on the various class leaders.......yes I know, I know.
