Type 4 - BritishRail-Locomotives
D1023 WESTERN FUSILIER on display outside the National Railway museum after arriving from Exeter on the 1Z54 'Western Finale'. A closer inspection of panels below the right side buffer shows the damage that the loco incurred after colliding with a cow near Charfield just to the north of Bristol. Luckily the damage wasn't enough to fail the loco and so we carried on to York. 12-2-77
