Voyager front end
« on: April 21, 2018, 02:23:59 pm »


Bit of an unusual thing. Or so I believe, but shooting into GO Outdoors in Derby, literally over the road from the Derby works these were sat outside a building on the next door industrial estate. No idea what their for or who BUT I was surprised to see them so thought I'd post and see what people know

They are spare cabs to replace any damaged ones, like the one that had the fatality back in December or January where the damage was so extensive, and the driver got injured. There are spare cabs for lots of locos/units in storage at various locations. Years ago I got a picture of a cab for a Class 67 in an old wagon at the old EWS Depot at Old Oak Common.

Cheers, Timmo
