This wonderful beast of a locomotive is one of our fastest and most powerful locos on the railway.

She was built out of necessity shortly after the line was extended in 2013, when our currently fleet of working locos shrunk for one reason or another.  Over her build regulars at the railway would have seen her in many forms of undress, until she came into service in 2014 in a basic livery.

In 2015 her livery was refreshed for the full EWS Livery she can be seen in now.
