"69" at Goring!

What's a "69"?

Started life as a BR-built Co-Co Class 56 around 1980. Not very successful, so re-engined as a cheaper alternative to a new loco. EMD/Caterpillar engine rated as 3,200hp. The trailing load is a brand new SWR Class 701 EMU - going to storage until they've trained enough drivers! Who says the UK is short of money? You couldn't make it up!

Having a blonde standing waving to the driver usually gets a "beep"
