British Railways Class 08 0-6-0 D 3840 is seen shunting a pair of Vans in the former LNWR parcels siding on 18th February 1961. The Class 08 design was based on the LMS 12033 series (later TOPS Class 11) design and which was built at Crewe, Darlington, Derby and Doncaster between 1953 and 1962 totalling 996 locomotives in all making it the most numerous of all British Railway locomotive classes. There were also 26 of the near-identical but higher-geared Class 09, and 171 similar locomotives fitted with different engines and transmissions (some of which became Class 10), which together brought the total number of outwardly-similar machines to 1193.
