D8568 is the unique locomotive in our collection, being the only surviving example of the Clayton Type 1's which numbered 117 in total. D8568 is also our only diesel-electric loco.
The locomotive is based at the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway and is used during the running season and at special events.
