33103 moving to the Bluebell Railway

Post by 35012 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:06 pm

Dependant on the availability of road transport Class 33 33103 Swordfish is due to be moved from Burton to the Bluebell Railway within the next few days. The locomotive is being brought in primarily to help facilitate the completion of works associated with the extension but will probably stay on beyond it's opening.

33103 arrived late afternoon today and is now safely tucked away in the old shed at Sheffield Park.

Basically the locomotive is there for infrastructure work and I believe to act as a rescue loco should it be required. Certainly better than the resident "mobile water feature" (08). We will have to wait and see if it gets used on any passenger trains, however it should be noted that it ran with the Bluebells VEP when it visited Swanage.
