DX73010 - Preservation Plea

One of the UKs oldest surviving tampers and unique of its kind in the UK, DX73010, has enjoyed a brief reprieve but is now in danger again as it is about to be evicted from its current home in Northumberland. The NRM didn't want it and now the future is again looking uncertain.

Potential buyers look only to cover cost of movement.

Please get in touch with us if you can offer a safe home to this unique piece of railway maintenance history...
