40123, an English Electric type 4 locomotive, succumbs to the cutters torch in Crewe Works after a twenty year career. The type were ordered for the pilot scheme dieselisation of British Railways in 1955 and the first entered service in 1958. Built by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns, she entered service as D323 in May 1961. She was withdrawn from Haymarket (Edinburgh) shed in 1980. Although partly cut up in this photo, she would hang on for another 9 months before being broken-up completely in February 1983.
