D2423 - 06006

   Cl 06 No. D2423 at Inverness 15/7/69  
First allocated to Kittybrewster in April 1959 and transferred to Inverness the following month. It was transferred to Aberdeen Ferryhill in June 1971 as a result of the closure of the Inverness Harbour branch. Whilst at Aberdeen Ferryhill its duties were in the docks. In early 1973 it visited St.Rollox Works and during that period its duties at Aberdeen were covered by D2444. It moved to Dundee in June 1977 where it replaced 06004 when the requirement for a locomotive at Aberdeen ceased. During the Spring of 1979 it was loaned to Dunfermline Townhill for a short period. In the mid 1970's seven Class 06 were distributed between Aberdeen Ferryhill, Dundee and Dunfermline Townhill. Aberdeen Ferryhill was allocated one for use in the Docks. Dunfermline Townhill was allocated four, two at Kirkcaldy, one at Markinch and one at the depot. Dundee was allocated two, one for use in the Harbour and one spare. The spare locomotive at Dundee appears to have given cover if needed for Aberdeen Ferryhill and Dunfermline Townhill locomotives being unavailable. It was withdrawn from Dundee in 1980 along with 06005 when they were replaced by 06002 and 06003. It remained at Dundee after withdrawal and was scrapped on site during July 1983 along with 06005. Details of which company actually scrapped the locomotive would be very much welcomed.
