Farewell 'Splutter'

Having arrived on 19th October 2011, the two Kof locos have proved their worth over the last two years. They've hauled all sorts around the Works, including mainline locos (47s, 57s and 66s) and electric units, not to mention dozens of Underground vehicles and wagons.

323 674-2, nicknamed 'Splutter' having developed an engine fault that made it sound rather unwell, is now departing for pastures new at Wansford on the Nene Valley Railway.

323 539-7 remains on site and is used out the back of the Works for shunting locos and wagons between bays 1, 2 and 3.

Here's a look back of some of 'Splutter's varied duties over the last two years.......
