08841 at Wednesbury
08841 was leaving Wednesbury Exchange Sidings and heading back to Bescot when photographed at 10:45 on Tuesday 29th September 1987. Class 08s were booked to work both the Wednesbury and Bloxwich trips around this time. 08841 was one of four 08s fitted with rubber "skirts" for use in the carriage washer at Oxley, the other three being 08765, 08832 and 08901. Repeated transits through the washer were responsible for the faded paintwork, which all four locos exhibited most of the time.
