Though 27756 was withdrawn when the Guinness traffic ended in 2006, it managed to escape the scrapman until July 2017, when it was purchased by one of our volunteers and moved to the DCDR. Its use is quite an important one – it carries our spare English Electric 4SRKT engine, which would otherwise be hopelessly impractical, if not logistically impossible, to store.
