Hi, any update on the two 58's that were sold recently?
are these locos preserved or for re sale or re-activation on the main line?
how many class 58s are preserved now? I have just read of 2 ... 16? owned by class 58 group and another one sold to someone recently.
Not sure if it was one of the recently sold 58s, but this evening at 6pm there was a 58 on the back of a low loader at the end of the A50 from derby way just before the M1 junction. It was in very faded EWS colours and appeared to possibly still have its engine / lots of big internal gubbins still fitted as half the panels on the side were missing and you could see the big gray lump inside.
I didn't get a unit number sadly as I was driving the other way, but it would be interesting to see if anyone knows anything about it,
