A week in August saw 82008 repainted from Large Logo Blue to InterCity Executive livery, as carried when on ECS duties at Euston.

A new aluminium cab corner has been fabricated to replace 82008's dented section.

81002 also received further attention, with the completed cab being rubbed down, primed and undercoated.

82008 gets top coats of Executive Dark Grey and Rail Red were then applied.

82008's yellow ends received their first coat the following day.

Once the dark grey and red stripes had dried, 82008 was remasked for painting white undercoat, whilst a second yellow coat was applied to the cabs.

Early on the Sunday morning, 82008's white stripes and Executive Light Grey sections were painted, and the masking removed.

82008 stands alongside 81002, which had also received a yellow end by this time.
