Doncaster Works

E5006 at Doncaster Works, thought to have been photographed during a visit on 24 May 1959. These DC electric locomotives, which eventually become class 71, were built for the SR Kent Coast electrification between 1958 and 1960. A total of 24 such examples emerged from Doncaster Works during that period, with 10 of the class being subsequently converted to electro-diesels (class 74) at Crewe during 1967-8. See image 20699
