These are very popular with enthusiasts, less so with drivers, I am told. At the time of writing, these are still fairly plentiful, but not for much longer, I think. The English Electric engine makes a very distinctive roar, not a bit like the effeminate purr of the 60s or 66s. Once I stood in the town of Liskeard in Cornwall, and we listened to one of these bring up half a train of china-clay wagons from the Moorswater works, and you could hear the roar all over town! Later it went back for the other half, and we video'd it - but it's never the same, after!
