59102, working 6V62 1321 Up Yard - Westbury Tarmac, wearing its variation of Genessee & Wyoming colours, as released from Eastleigh Works on 5th April.

The dual numbering, of stickers and cast plate, has already been removed. Will there be any more repaints in G&W colours?

153376 has been seen before since it was repainted, but it has now received full yellow ends, which makes it look asymmetrical.

This is the original Leyland built Class 155 end.of 57376 (originally 57326 of 155326, which saw service from Cardiff).

This ens is that from the Hunslet-Barclay rebuild at Kilmarnock.

69009 WESTERN CONSORT spent some time in the yard through the week ...

... before being dragged to Doncaster overnight on 18th - 19th.

66734 PLATINUM JUBILEE was painted in this scheme in June 2022.
