SD6310 : Western Lady at Horwich

Western Lady at Horwich
Western Lady at Horwich
A preserved Class 52 locomotive, D1048 'Western Lady' spent from late 1980 until 83 stored in Horwich Works during a move from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to her current home at the Midland Railway Centre. I believe there was also a change of ownership involved.

The Western's were built for the Western Region of British Railways and were Diesel Hydraulic locomotives. The majority of locomotives built for BR were of Diesel Electric type and when rationalisation was carried out to remove a surplus of locomotives the Hydraulics were deemed non-standard. D1048 entered service in December 1962 and was withdrawn in February 1977.
