D1705 Locomotive Update - May 2016

Our class 47 shaped jigsaw puzzle is now back in one piece and quite a little bit heavier with all the new metal that has replaced the rust. Hopefully most of you have been following the photo updates on our Facebook page.

It has been rolled into the paint shop at Washwood Heath for a bare metal strip-down and a re-spray into BR Blue with pre-TOPS numbers. Our friends at the Brush Type 4 Fund have kindly copied a set of original drawings to assist with the correct positioning of the numbers and double arrows.
