33065 : Both bodysides now in grey undercoat with one cab end in yellow. Painting into B.R. Blue will continue as the weather permits. It is envisaged to have 065 with an off-white roof so that it will be similar to 063 but also distinctively different. 065, also, lacks snow ploughs. A sponsor has secured the fitting of ‘Sealion’ nameplates when painting is completed.
33063 and 33065 were in action on Sat. 1st December for the visit of a Pathfinders railtour from S.Wales. 063 provided power for the service trains whilst 065 was giving the chance to ‘drive-a-loco’ for those visitors who opted to sit at the controls of a Crompton. More details of this, with pictures, of the weekends events will appear in due course.
