Class 33 Locomotive Cab Front at Night

Cab front of an unidentified Class 33 diesel locomotive stabled for the night on a siding at Basingstoke station in the late 1980's.


The Class 33 stands close to where one of Basingstoke's signal boxes once stood.

As a young boy I was lucky enough, with a friend of mine, to be able to visit the signal box in question and watch for a while the steam-hauled trains going back and forth.  It was a treat that I will never forget.
