D821 is one of the two preserved Warship locomotives from the original 38 built by BR at Swindon Works. Sadly none of the 33 built by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow were saved for preservation.
'Greyhound' is based on the Severn Valley Railway and is used throughout the running season and at diesel events.
