Because DB haven't got round to repainting it yet? There's still quite a few in EWS livery, however 010 has managed to have 4 liveries since it was delivered (EWS, Chiltern, Caledonian Sleeper and DB).While on the subject, I've been wondering why this one is still in EWS livery? 67018 was up here recently in DB livery which is why I was thinking about the EWS livery,
Well done there mateyI'm glad that is wasn't repainted because if it had been red, it wouldn't have had the large number on the body side, and I wouldn't have been able to identify it.
I've been at this a long time. I had seen all the true Class 08's and 09' s by 1976. I only saw one of the D3117-D3126 series (all withdrawn by July 1967), and never completed the Class 10 series which were all withdrawn by the middle of 1972. I bought a car in 1969, but it was only in 1973 - 74 that I had enough time and money to chase locos. Gronks were easier to trace than skips, because they had a very short radius of action and there were several publications which pointed to where they were and where they were stabled at the weekend. It has taken me 18 years to clear the skips and I even spent a weekend in Edinburgh getting up to go Waverley at 3 am to see the sleeper.
So 31160 - it still isn't easy.
Anyone got any information on the Polish sheds ? The French DBC sheds are based at Alizay which is south of Rouen and that is where most of the stored French Class 58's are.
Thanks to everyone on this thread for their help
