33117 has been a long standing member of the ELR Diesel Loco fleet and a useful machine to the railway with ETH capability. 33117 was withdrawn from service early 2006 for a heavy overhaul to begin including power unit maintenance and a partial cab rebuild.
33117 is currently stored under cover and work is ongoing. For reasons unknown at the time of writing, but clearly for hilarity, the loco has been adorned with 'ETHEL 4' above its running number. Hopefully it will be able to do more than just heat carriages in the not too distant future though!
