OK, so this isn't a British loco on a British line but it is a German V200 class Diesel Hydraulic loco on the rear of a special train in the Rhine Valley. Those with a passing interest in all things hydraulic in this country will know that this was the type of loco upon which our Class 42 / 43 'Warships' and Class 52 'Westerns' were based back in the late 50's .
