  • Seen here is British Rail diesel locomotive number HS4000, named "Kestrel".

    Although not visible in this black and white clip, the engine was painted in ochre and chocolate brown, separated by a thin strip of white.

    The handing over of the train witnessed here took place on 29 January 1968. It was withdrawn just three years later in March 1971.

    "Hawker Siddleley" in the top line should read Hawker Siddeley.
