  • ADB 968000

    How is this different operation wise from a class 20? Quite clearly they've extended the chassis and added an extension on the end.

    This is a Class 15, not a 20. They are fitted with BTH electrical equipment and a Paxman engine. When converted to train heat unit's there traction motors were removed and the generators were then used to provide an electric supply to coaching stock.

    In a recently published book, there is a photo of ADB 968000 at Gateshead in 1972. Does anyone know when it arrived and left?

    Is this loco now preserved and where is it located?

    No this one was scrapped although 968001 (D8233) is at East Lancs Railway.

    I saw DB968000 on Gateshead Depot on 17/12/69. I assume it was being checked over before going to Heaton CS as a heating unit.

    Also when travelling from KingsX to Newcastle on 06/11/69 as the train was passing Doncaster Station , I saw one of its sister locos DB968003 (D8203) in the works sidings adjacent the Station .

    As far as i know they were converted at Doncaster in 1969 , so DB968000 may have been on its first trip north.
