12001 1956-09-09 Derby shed

Lots of interesting chalked-on words. 350bhp diesel shunter No.12001 on 9th September 1956 at Derby shed. It was one of ten built for the LMS in 1936 at Hawthorn Leslie?s factory at Forth Bank, Newcastle with engines, generators, traction motors and other electrical equipment installed at the Dick, Kerr Works of English Electric in Preston. Built as LMS No.7076 it became BR No.12001 in September 1949 and lasted until February 1962.
