THE East Anglian Railway Museum’s Class 04 No. D2279 has been repainted in BR green with wasp stripes each end, and now sees regular use at Chappel & Wakes Colne.
It was away for some time while receiving attention by Peter Briddon at Darley Dale, returning in July 2018.
The Drewry shunter will soon be joined by under-restoration German railbus No. E79963, providing an early-BR look to the museum’s diesel fleet.
The 0-6-0D was providing ‘driver-for-a-tenner’ experiences up and down the short running line on June 16, as seen here. STUART CHAPMAN
