(Product Ref #70368)

The locomotive was maintained in service by a few fitters at Ebbw Vale shed, combining experience in the maintenance of the engines from Westerns and electrical systems from class 37s and 47s. Sadly the contract terms for the sale of Falcon agreed between Brush and BR required the scrapping of the locomotive once it became surplus to BRs requirements and, despite approaches from preservation groups, the locomotive was cut up.

The combined skills of Ebbw Junction's fitters kept Falcon flying despite it's one-off combination of Maybach engines (as used in the Westerns) and electric power transmission (as used on Ebbw Junctions' 37s).
