Reflecting on it's bleak future Class 40 No. 40013 sits on the scrap line at Vic Berry's Yard in Leicester on 5th June 1988. Withdrawn by BR in January 1985 she had arrived in the yard on 11th May 1988 and is seen in the company of Class 97/4 No. 97408, ex Class 40 No. 40118, and un unknown Class 47. Amazingly 30 years after this scrapyard image was taken No. 40013 has returned to the main line on test trains and should once again be hauling passengers around the UK later this year.
