BR Standard Class 4MT No.80104 will spend 2017 renumbered as No.80146.
Why? Might you ask?
2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the end of Steam on the Southern Region of British Railways.
On the 18th June 1967 80146, hauled the final steam hauled passenger train on the Swanage branch.
Our friends at Southern Locomotives agreed to the renumbering of 80104 and it will spend all of 2017 as 80146.
