British Rail Class 31 diesel locomotive

Photo of the BR class 31 diesel locomotive D5830. This 115t engine is capable to operate at 90 mph (145 km/h) and was built by Brush Traction somewhere between 1957 and 1962.

This specific loc, D5830, is a preserved example in BR Golden Ochre livery and runs on the heritage Great Central Railway in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire (England).

See also picture #2883 (taken from almost an identical spot) and picture #4347. Both of the same locomotive.

Photo thanks to Graham Doughty.
