The late rock legend is paid the most unlikely of tributes...

JOE STRUMMER is to have the most unlikely of tributes to him – a locomotive named in his honour.

The train, simply named Joe Strummer, will be unveiled on February 12 at Bristol Temple Meads station in recognition of the late Clash singer.

Strummer died in December 2002, aged 50.

The locomotive is a Class 47 diesel, a designed in 1962 and after being named, will work in East Anglia.
