Date: 3rd February 1991

A rather bleak view of "round the back" at Doncaster Works on 3rd February 1991. M51860 and M51370 look fairly forlorn in the cold and damp. I don't know if they were here for disposal or repairs. The one thing I didn't notice until I scanned the original slide was the lump of blue metal on the right. This is actually a roof panel from one of the long-departed Deltics which were cut up here some eight or nine years earlier. Syd Young.
