    It would be nice if this unit was kept in this livery - especially with the black window surrounds! Seems most preserved units these days are painted green without a second thought - be good to see some variation! It could keep its departmental number too ;)

    If anyone has contacts at the GCR can you pass my comments on please?!

    Alas, I don't think they will listen - I've heard that it will be repainted green to fit in with the 1960's re-creation thing they've got going on. Strangely, I don't recall Mk3 sleepers and civil 37s in the 60's, so may be wrong!

    Unfortunately you're both right - the GCR confirms on its website that the unit will be repainted green with whiskers. Its strange how some lines seem to forget that BR blue first appeared in 1964!

    Sorry, meant to add, it has been rubbed down a little ready for repaint but still looks good in blue.
