This is on the preserved Great Central Railway on the occasion of the 2018 winter steam gala. The locomotive is usually at the North Norfolk Railway but provides a welcome splash of colour at the GCR. This is LNER apple green livery. Further colour was provided by LMS crimson lake on visiting 'Crab' 13065.

Locomotive liveries can provoke fierce debate but I do like to see other colours among the BR black locomotives.
