South Devon Railway
09010 is currently in the process of being repainted into original BR Green livery by South Devon Diesel Traction.  A oil and filter change is required and the shunter will shortly be fitted with new batteries to ensure its reliability.

SDDT’s 20110 is receiving a cab refurbishment, this was last done in the early 1990’s and was showing its age.  The cab is being repainted in the original cream and green colour scheme that stands up well to regular use.  The loco is scheduled to be out in action at this weekend’s Thomas event along with 25262, a timetable will be posted once available.
