Just seen this parked at Kings Cross in a strange bluey/green all-over colour. Anyone know why?
For use by ATW, I believe.
Plan is to use them on the Holyhead - Cardiff WAG service.
Ah ok. Currently it just looks very retro...
67003 wears the same livery
As others have said, 67001 has been painted into a base coat of Arriva blue, reportedly for future use on the Holyhead-Cardiff WAG Express services. It is currently being employed as an ECML Thunderbird, having been performing that duty at Newcastle just a couple of days ago before it's move down to KX.
Can we have some pic's of "blue" 67001-3
Its not a new thing, there will be lots of pictures if you just search 67003 in flickr, or just have a look on this forum
67 002 isn't currently blue - still in EWS livery and working one of the ECML RHTTs (it was at Peterborough at the weekend, as blue 67 001 headed 91 125 north on a drag).
Now if you had been following the posts on here over the weekend, you would have seen this post and picture on the ECML drags this weekend?
Hope that helps.
67001 arrived at Canton today
Now that's interesting, a couple of weeks prior to the new ATW timetables that don't exist yet,the speculation is mind boggling, but staff have got to be trained up first,then trained on the DVTs. So March looks about right. Latest info from Charlie Hume today is [We understand that since the meeting 3/11/11 it has been agreed that the timetable change will go ahead as planned, with the same Government-sponsored services as in 2011 - C.H.]

67002 assigned to Toton on Monday for painting into Arriva.
I can show you a pic of 67003 but it isn't what you call...er...blue
I'd say it's more......brown?
Looks more like an East European relic
Now that's much more like authentic BR blue than the pristine version of the livery that many people have said that the scheme is reminiscent of.
That's the very distinctive RHTT livery...
Just needs a big BR logo on it..
It's greener in the flesh lol.. Here's the other end..
I look forward to getting a trip on this
It's too shiney for traffic haha
If 82306 is now in the flesh, what DVT has it been renumbered from, I know that there will be 82306-308 for ATW.
82306 was 82144
82307 was 82131
Thanks for that,
67002 is at Toton for relivery in ATW colours...
So, there will be three locos after all then. I was beginging to think the reports I had read that 67001, 02 & 03 were all coming to ATW were false and only 67001 and 67003 would appear.
There's an 82308? First I've read of a third ATW DVT anywhere on the web. Is 82307 even in existance yet or is that still in the paint shop?
3 x DVTs? Maybe there'll be a northbound morning train!!?
Can confirm that ATW Blue is being applied to 67002 as we speak.
Not that we're speaking.
You get my drift.
