    Sorry to be pedantic but D5500 became 31.018 - to pick up the gap left when D5518 was converted to a standard Class 31/1 to become 31.101.

    With no disrespect to Anthony Coulis, however, this does show that even people involved in the NRM ( and presumed to be knowledgeable ) can make mistakes which can be perpetuated unless identified and corrected.

    So with grateful thanks for the info and apologies for taking the liberty of correcting a small but important error.

    No doubt Mr Coulls (note spelling) can clarify, but it appears that he has used the online NRM list as the basis for his very helpful post, and that list unfortunately perpetuates the 31001 anomaly. I'm sure you will be pleased to observe that history is represented correctly on the real locomotive.

    Mr Sauce does indeed know that it is 31 018 (and has known that for a long time!) now we come to it, and yes, to save time, I did use the NRM's on-line list - and didn't proof read the list. I shall get on to those who maintain the website to correct it.

    I believe it is a Diesel engine. No doubt Mr Coulls can confirm

    31.018 has the standard English Electric engine fitted to all 263 class members when the original Mirtrlees engine developed serious cracks during the mi 1960s. The reason for the Class 31/0 designation was because the first 20, ordered as part of the Pilot Scheme, had both different driving consoles ( i.e the "toffee apple" ) and multiple fitting, being designated red dot rather than the later blue star system as fitted to the production series.

    On the outside there is little visible evidence but the value of 31.018 / D5500 was that it was the first main line locomotive to be delivered under the Pilot Scheme whereas D8000 was the first diesel locomotive to be delivered under the Pilot Scheme - remembering that the Class 20 was considered as a "trip" locomotive or "super shunter" rather than a main line locomotive.

    D8000 is back from Shildon and now at York, D200 is having fairly najor surgery in the works at the mo. No plans to main line it though, sorry.
