40B RIP

Around late 2007-early 2008, Immingham depot closed to all major repairs other than running repairs and small exams. The depot was used to house the various stored locos from around the site, eventually all being sold off to scrappies. The final locos in the shed were the three stored 60s which had been out of traffic for the longest – 60070 and 60064 in the fuelling shed and 60098 in the main shed. At the time of the visit, 60074 – which had just been repainted – was also receiving repairs giving the sight of the longest stored one and the shiniest one together.
