Whilst in Doncaster on Saturday, we were able to get a view of the North end of Doncaster Works.

From there, we could see 2 Class 08 shunters - one, I was able to identify, 08669 - however, the other was tucked inside the 'shed' at that end of the yard.

According to the Platform 5 book for 2016, there are 3 08s based there - 08669 I have been able to identify, as mentioned above - I'm just wondering if anyone might be able to help identify if the other loco was 08724, or 08853? Those are the other two listed in the book.

Cheers

571 and 596 (may be) there at present

08571, 08724 & 08853 should be there, but 08596 was moved to Craigentinny last week, where it was swapped with 08615 - which in turn headed to LH Group at Burton.

All I could tell about the mostly hidden 08, was that it was in the same 'dark' livery as 08669. Looks like it may be difficult to identify, overall.
