Golden ‘Teddy Bear’ to star at Didcot event

CLASS 14 No. D9551 arrived at Didcot by road from the Severn Valley Railway (SVR) on March 8. 

The golden ochre-liveried loco is seen at DB Cargo’s fuelling point prior to being taken across the tracks to enter Didcot Railway Centre. Behind is DBC Class 66 No. 66057.

The 0-6-0DH will be used on three weekends before returning to the SVR for its May 16-18 diesel festival. It will work one of Didcot’s two operating lines on April 13-14 and May 11-12 with resident Class 14 No. D9516 on the other.

For the May 4-6 Didcot diesel gala (RM March, p92) the two ‘Teddy Bears’ will be double heading. Picture: DYLAN ROBINSON
