Looking Good in Black

 

After many years out of service at Pete Waterman's Crewe workshops the BR Standard locomotive 70000 makes her first pubklic appearance at the West Somerset Railway's Spring Gala last week. Painted in unlined black and running without the Britannia Nameplates she looked and sounded good in the late afternon at Bishop's Lydeard.

One powerful beast Les: I think she might be part of the national collection. I'm going down there tomorrow so I may get a glimpse myself. I'm not sure whether the livery is authentic though
Les Auld: She did run in black for a short period in the beginning but was soon repainted Chris, thanks for the comment, hope you get to see her in all her glory.

I bet she could haul a load, Les. One smooth operator, I bet.
Les Auld: One powerful engine Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
Doesn't she look grand, I bet she'll be left the WSR by the time I go there in the summer on holiday.
Les Auld: Back to the mainline Brian, thanks for the comment.
She looks fantastic but was she ever painted black in service?
Les Auld: Only for a short while so I believe Bill, thanks for the comment.
