the penultimate day of the official closure of Margam Depot,
08752 underwent a power unit change using the engine block
from 09003 and a reconditioned generator from Ferrybridge.
The power unit change was carried out using Margam Depot's
75 Ton Cowans Sheldon Crane manned by a supervisor, crane
driver and four slingers. The power unit from 09003 was
removed some weeks earlier and the defective generator was
changed prior to 08752 arriving at Margam Depot.
