70000 at Chester

 

Ex British Rail Britannia Class locomotive 70000 at Chester after arriving with the Cathedrals Express from London. This ispossibly the last time Britannia will be seen in Black, she is scheduled to be repainted in green and nameplates fitted early in the new year.

A terrific shot Les.She came through Bath a couple of days ago. Personally I'll be glad when the authentic livery re-appears: in black it is just too reminiscent of a 9F - at least at a distance
Les Auld: I know what you mean Chris, It would be great to see her and Cromwell together when she is repainted. Two Britannias in Green. Thanks for the comment.
Great shot of a great loco Les, one of my favourites,I'm with Chris on the livery.
Les Auld: Black or Green it is a fine looking engine Frank, thanks for the comment.
Yes she should look good in the green, but she is still a fine looking loco, I saw her at the WSR in June.
Les Auld: She is a grand looking loco indeed Brian, thanks for the comment.
