Hi all. Some may recognise me from other forums but due to consistent technical problems, I've got fed up so joined here after months of observation! Just to say for those who don't know, I am a GWR employee, user and enthusiast and modeller and dont post politics or speculation but some of my news can be up to 3 years ahead of it happening ! Its been a quiet time down here since Christmas with just some test drilling for the new building of the depot so I will start with a correct, up to date livery list for our stock. SLEP blue 10534 currently under repaint at Wolverton due back this month 10563 10584 10589 10616 SLEP green 10532 10590 10594 10601 10612 SLEP new stock under internal refurbishment 10596 Restaurant First Modular Buffet green 10219, 10225 blue 10232 - NOT being painted or refurbished, to go off lease due to corrosion and different batch build when refurbishment program complete. under internal refurb 10217 replacement for 232 Brake Second Open All green 17173,4,5 Tourist Second Open Disabled classification to change once internally refurbished all blue 12100,12161 under internal refurb and new to us 12142 08 410 is BR green, the shade IS different ! 57602,3,5 new GWR green 57604 traditional GWR green to be repainted next same as now despite suggestions of BR class 52 style maroon,sand or ochre..... . We will take over allocation of 57s from OC once depot rebuild complete. DRS has the contract for the extra 57 until the franchise end, now already expected to be 2020. Just to say, loco number logs are available from myself for almost every up pz to pad trip for the past 3 years or so should any enquiries be wanted. More news as and when. --- old post above --- --- new post below --- Ps, not seen it mentioned on here but the caterpillar has been dissected!
