For over 20 years I have been scratting about trying to find out what happened to the electric locomotive named after J.B. Priestley. The last time I looked was a few years ago and there was no record on-line. There is now. If was renamed Suffolk – Relax Refresh Return by Anglia Railways (ffs! Is that the most most stupid name for a British loco ever?) and is now in storage.

 

so for the sake of making the record more obvious here is the link
