Cl 06 No. D2432 on an up transfer goods at Greenock 3/9/60  
The allocation history has it first allocated to Hamilton in February 1960. Transferred to Polmadie in May 1960. Transferred to Eastfield in September 1967.

This though is not fully born out by the observations. The sightings at Greenock suggest either a loan to this sub-shed of Polmadie or even a transfer for various periods. Also, was it actually transferred to Ayr in 1966 prior to transferring to Eastfield the following year.

Withdrawn from Eastfield in December 1968 where it was initially stored.

   The photographer was very lucky to catch D2432 en route from Scotland to the Isle of Sheppey. The location is Gosforth High Street, then the A1! Although not certain, the date is thought to be 19th May 1969.   Brian Henderson
The locomotive was sold to R. E. Trem & Company, Finningley, near Doncaster. They in turn sold it to Shipbreaking (Queenborough), Oueenborough, Isle of Kent for further use.

Movement from Glasgow to the Isle of Sheppey would appear to have been taken in part or most likely in whole by road. In addition to the accompanying photograph there is a report of it being sighted at Stamford on 20th May 1969 on road transport.

It was put into use on the internal network of lines then operated by Shipbreaking (Queenborough). These had in the past been operated by Settle, Speakman & Company. D2726 was also in use at this location at that time.

It remained in use until it was exported to Italy in March 1977. Furter details of its subsequent history can be found in Shunters exported to Italy where all sightings of this locomotive after it left Queenborough should be submitted.
