Hanson 59101 at Gatwick Airport.
There are 4 Hanson Quarry Products 59/1 diesel locomotives which were built by General Motors of Canada in London, Ontario in 1990. They are rated at 2460 kW, 3300 hp and have a maximum speed of 60 mph, 97 km/h.

Hanson Quarry 59101 "Village of Whatley" heads a northbound stone train through Gatwick Airport Station on Thursday September 21st, 2000. It has been pointed out to me that the single star at the top centre of the front yellow panel indicates the last digit of the loco number for the series 59101-4.
The 468 sign on the wall is the stopping position for 4, 6 & 8 car multiple units.
