Swindon Works

Western D1019 and Hymek D7089 on the scrap line at Swindon Works on 16 March 1974. Both had been withdrawn the previous May but the Hymek (which is clearly in better condition here) was later removed from the works yard for departmental service as train heating unit ADB968005. This was only for a brief period but the loco didn't return to Swindon, being broken up at Thomson's in Stockton in late 1975 or early 1976. D1019 only lasted a few more months and was cut up at Swindon in October 1974. (With thanks to Peter Todd and Crinan Dunbar).
