A rather quiet period for repaints over the last few weeks has seen the action centred on Toton, where two further former ‘Eurosheds’ were turned out in DB red in the form of 66010 and 66073. An actual ‘Shed’ from Europe was also tackled, with imported 66799 now resplendent in GBRF blue and orange.
The Greater Anglia white and black livery is now extinct on the Class 90s following the visit of 90013 to Wolverton Works, it emerging on February 9 resplendent in Freightliner orange and black. 90013 was the final Class 90 of the 13 former Greater Anglia locomotives bought by Freightliner to gain the operator’s G&w-inspired colour scheme.
East Midlands Railway continues to apply its aubergine colour scheme to its units, with 170501 and another two Class 360 EMUS transformed, while the obsolete South Western Trains Stagecoach colours on the Class 450 fleet continue to disappear in favour of South Western Railway’s blue and white.
