08588 at Bescot
Ex-works 08588 stands outside the steam shed at Bescot. No date for this, but it's probably late 1970s. Bescot also had 08585 and 08590 at this time, and all three of those survive to this day. 585 was a Freightliner loco, working at Felixstowe North at the time of writing (September 2013). 590 is preserved at the Midland Railway Centre, Butterley. 588 is owned by BARS/RMS Locotec, and in 2013 was working just a few miles away from Bescot, at Cemex in Washwood Heath. 588 was built at Crewe in late 1959, so was about 20 years old when this photo was taken.
