The shortest-lived of the class 56s, 56042 heads a Coton Hill - Bescot trip working near Codsall. This train normally used a class 25 but the loco's status has clearly been downgraded after it's testing of the CP1 bogie (to be developed for the class 58) has come to an end. I believe it was scrapped around 1990. 28/1/85
