The loco was named ATLANTIC CONVEYOR on 11th August 1984 in memory of the British Merchant ship and the twelve sailors who lost their lives in the 1982 Falklands War. The ship was hit on 25th May 1982 and later sank under tow a few day later. The name was dedicated by John Brocklehurst, Chief Officer of the ship. Following the naming ceremony, D306 worked its first passenger train in preservation, becoming the first Class 40 to do so.
40106 was purchased by the CFPS from the family of the late Mr Gerald Boden. One of the conditions of sale was that the locomotive would always carry its Atlantic Conveyor nameplates. To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Falklands War and to carry on the tradition set by Mr Boden and his family, the CFPS has produced this polo shirt. We hope you appreciate the use of the words “Falklands 40” in commemoration and to celebrate the link to our very own 40106, of which we are very proud. Profits made from the sale of the polo shirts will go towards the upkeep of our three Class 40 locomotives.
