the window to the right of the yellow diesal was the bosses office if I remember right, stood on the carpet there once or twice when I fired for old Harry Heyes

I've now found the original print taken from this negative. The print has the loco details recorded on the back. The class 25 was number 5258. Of the 4 class 08 shunters visible three were numbers 3782, 3425 & 3538.
