33063
33063 will be taking part in the Diesel running day at the Spa Valley Railway this weekend along with 37254.  Both locos will be running into Eridge. The loco roster is available here

63 was used on service trains and a special charter on 9th April, fresh out from a not quite complete repaint.  63 will require an additional coat of grey and application of assorted stickers and sector decals (probably by June/July).

The nameplate as pictured was a temporary affair, carried for some 5 hours in association with the special charter train.  ‘R.J.Mitchell’ plates are now carried on both sides.

D444
After extensive bodywork repairs and preparation, work has now started to repaint D444 into BR Blue livery.  The loco is currently in all over primer and it is hoped that the repaint will progress quicker than planned.
