A very interesting article about details of the D600 Warships and their operation in Cornwall. I did not manage to see these locomotives in operation - but as I had heard that a single example remained in the Scrap Yard at Barry, I purposely ventured to see it. None of us knew it at the time - but both examples of North British diesels (D6122 and D601) would be scrapped around two months later! A little out of the West Country patch - but I attach a photograph of D6122 and D601 at Barry Scrap Yard on 9 April 1980.
