BR Doncaster built 204hp 0-6-0 shunter No D.2087 - or whats left of it - stands dumped at Landore (Swansea) on Sun19Mar72.
Withdrawn in June of the previous year, it lingered on until March 1973 when it was cut up. These locos were later classed as 03, but this example didn't live long enough to become 03087.
The adjacent Brush Type 4 had a number of subsequent identities:- 1665 47080 47838 and finishing up as 47779.
