Network 150 Day - (08) British Rail Class 71 electric loco No. E5001
Photographed at Waterloo Station in October 1988, at the Ian Allan Network 150 Day. This locomotive was designed to work on British Rail's Southern Region third rail system electrified lines only. It was one of a small class of 24 locomotives, built at the British Rail workshops in Doncaster, Yorkshire, in 1958. They were built for the East Kent main lines. They were mixed traffic engines but in fact they did spend a lot of their time pulling prestigious passenger services such as the London to Paris "Night Ferry", a train-ferry service. They were all withdrawn at the end of 1977. E5001, which was later re-numbered 71001, is the only one of the class to be preserved. It normally lives at the National Railway Museum in York. Unusually in 1988 the loco did not have the usual yellow painted ends.
