The loco was in Wartime black livery but can repaint to Grenn livery later.

Now that's interesting news.. I wonder if there is a ww2 movie in the pipeline... Cool It would certainly go a long way to fund the restoration..

What a beautiful machine. I kind of like the wartime black...Love to see video, when it is back under steam.

That's good news. The steam legend can go back to doing what it does bestThumpUp
The wartime black livery looks neat. Interesting is that only the letters "N E" are on the tender, instead of the usual "L N E R". No doubt something intended to confuse German spies or landing troops(that never cameTongue )
