Search in this set

In March and April 2002 we held a mammoth "Working Fortnight" with the aim of repainting 85101 from faded Rail Blue into Railfreight Triple-Grey. This livery, whilst never carried in traffic, was literally only a signature away from being applied in BR days; the opportunity was taken to see what it would have looked like, and gain some publicity in the process.

The repaint was completed by the end of the fortnight, and the finishing touches were added a couple of weeks later, just prior to Barrow Hill's "Kings Cross in the 1960s" gala.
