Description

Photographed at the Great Central Railway, Loughborough, on 7 February 2009.
At some time between 1969 and 1975 the TOPS renumbering scheme changed D6535 to Class 33 no. 33116. D6535 was originally built at Smethwick in 1960.
A total of 98 class 33s were built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company, and they were called "Cromptons" after the Crompton Parkinson electrical equipment installed in them.
