58001 - a BR Class 58 diesel loc

Picture of the 58001, a British Rail Class 58 freight diesel locomotive built at Doncaster Works. This was the first one of a total production of 50 locs. It entered service in 1982 with British Rail.

They have been withdrawn from service in the UK by EWS, but you can find some of them in service in other countries in Europe. I presume this one has been preserved....
