This locomotive was built in 1961 by Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Ltd. in Smethwick. On withdrawal Sandwell Council bought the locomotive and based her on the SVR. After a period out of use she moved offsite for bodywork overhaul, firstly in November 2015 to UKRail's facility in Leicester, then to Cranmore Traincare and Maintenance Services on the East Somerset Railway in February 2016.

A few internal shots of 27059 added. Plenty more work to get it operational though.

Latest news from Cranmore Traincare and Maintenance Services is that 27059 has been moved outside the shed, and is looking respectable at Cranmore (East Somerset Railway). The locomotive would still require significant work.
