56108 was built at BREL at Crewe and entered traffic on October 20, 1983 allocated to Tinsley. Having passed through British Rail, Railfreight Coal Sector and Transrail ownership, 56103 was withdrawn from service in February 2000 at Immingham with excessive wheelset wear. Subsequently identified for reinstatement, 56103 passed into Fastline service and was overhauled by Brush Traction in May 2006 and reclassified as Class 56/3. Renumbered to 56303 on May 18, 2005, the locomotive was then used alongside 56301 and 56302 on the Fastline container trains running between Doncaster, Grain, Birch Coppice and Trafford Park. With the collapse of Fastline, 56303 passed into Devon & Cornwall Railways ownership and is currently awaiting sale by tender.
