Once a common sight pottering around Rugby station, Class 08909 diesel shunter, built between 1952 and 1962, in BR blue livery, similar in design to its sister Class 09, is seen parked up in one of the station's bay platforms at the eastern end in November 1988.
The condition of Rugby station roof is a sad testament to how derelict the station canopy had become before its refurbishment that was to come years later.
Class 08909 survived until 2011 when it was sent to C.F. Booth's for scrapping on the 10th August of that year.
A total of 996 examples of the Class 08 diesel were produced for British Railways.
