Back in 2007, I used to chase the visiting locomotives on the West Somerset Railway.
Class 25, D7523 “John F Kennedy” in the rain, pulling into Williton station on the West Somerset Railway, pulling GWR 5553, small prairie 2-6-2T.
D7523 was built by British Railways at Darlington in 1965. It was at Toton TMD before moving around various London Midland Region sheds. I understand in 1974 it was renumbered 25173.
This Diesel engine, I currently believe, as of 4th December, 2015 is on Epping Ongar Railway undergoing a full overhaul.
