Production in Basildon Essex commenced in 1971 (Period One) with other examples being made throughout the remaining periods leading up to the factory’s’ closure in 1992 (Period Four).

This later GWR example in Green livery running number 7002 has probably only ever been perodically test run, which is unusual for such a popular engine.
