Stratford looks nice and busy,a real shame the "Babys" didn't last longer than they did.Pity they were all scrapped too.I suppose there was no diesel preservation movement as such then.

Neil,
Is there any mix-up in respect of the last two links, the intended photos, the photos they actually lead to, and how you've labelled them here?

I ask because : -

- the 3rd listed ["D5905 complete with ladder on nose (unknown location)"], comes up captioned as 5906 (which I think is correct, looking at the loco's cabside). I would think this location is just south of Potters Bar station (visible in background), viewed from the up side embankment.

- the last listed ["D5906 (unknown location)"], immediately comes up captioned as being at Stratford.

The Baby Deltics were Class 23 under the TOPS system. The Class 29's were the North British Type 2's with Paxman engines.
