BR Type 2 (later class 24) loco number D5028

This is a Hornby body converted to the class 24 with the Craftsman conversion kit.  This was finished before the Bachmann model was released, and well before the Sutton Loco Works model.

The power bogie has been replaced with a High Level Lo-Rider bogie with the 48:1 ratio.

Locos of this type worked the occasional freight just before the line's closure.  The model will work a train of vans heading to the Cadbury's factory at Moreton, alternating with a 4F.
