25218 arrives with a terminating Carlisle - Glasgow service, via Dumfries and the G&SW route. The Class 25/2 were mostly dual braked, steam heat equipped for passenger workings; note the marker lights panel has gone, revealing the full force of 40W bulbs behind!

Built BR Derby Works in September 1963 as D7568, this loco was eventually withdrawn in January and scrapped in June 1985 at BREL Swindon works.
