20 118 has finally been outshopped in a beautiful new coat of raifreight grey! A big THANKYOU to everybody who worked on it. It is a credit to you all, especially Peter who put in hours and hours.

The primering has gone well and canary yellow paint has started to appear along with a bit of railfreight grey!
SPA VALLEY GALA:
20 110 was admired and performed faultlessly at the Spa Valley Railway's August Diesel Gala, which although I wasn't able to attend, I'm told was a well organised and successful event. Certainly a lot of happy people came back from it, so congratulations to the South East Loco group and Spa Valley Lads and Lasses!
The time has come around again to repaint 20 118. A bit of welding had to be done around the cab and a lot of paint preparation is underway. We've chosen to do the same livery again as this is how most people remember this particular loco from it's BR days and it looks quite pretty with it's Saltburn by the Sea nameplates and it's Thornaby embellishments!
Thanks to our friends from Plymouth it's also having a new cab floor.
