The iconic water tower of the former GMDD plant in London still stands as 1408 returns home to where it was built in 1960. It's always good to be home, if only for a brief moment. The former GMDD facility is now split between HCL  Logistics and General Dynamics and 568 had a single car for HCL from the ONR. Funny, I've shot a gaggle of locomotives inside this facility, but never did shoot a train going in or out of it, this is my first.
