Class 82 Electric 82008 at Barrowhill 27/11/2005

At Barrowhill on 27th November 2005 class 82 Bo-Bo Electric locomotive looks in superb condition but, sadly, it is only cosmetic 82008 is not operational.
Built in 1961 by Beyer-Peacock & Co Ltd 82008 was originally preserved in 1992. Unusually she has an aluminium body.
Some electrical work has been done but, as with all restoration projects, the full job will take a long time.
And when completed the owning group will then have to find somewhere with overhead power lines in order to run her.
