Class 33



Another small Bo-Bo locomotive that was native to another region. I this case the Southern region monopolised the 33's, at the time they were all based out of either Eastleigh (EH) or Hither Green (HG) sheds. They did work to South Wales quite frequently on Portsmouth Harbour trains and so I was able to spot quite a few including once, one of the rare 33/2 subtypes that were built narrower for the hastings line.
