The last Class 24 Skinhead in mainline service was 24081. Withdrawn in 1980, after a working life of just over 20 years, it has now been in preservation for over 30. Here it is at Steamport in Southport, its first home, at a special open day. Steamport was based in the old steam shed but later closed with operations being moved to the Ribble Steam Railway at Preston although 24081 now resides on the GWR at Toddington.
