26th July saw Aquila emerge from the shelter of the loco shed where she has been residing for the last 24 weeks. The end has been completely rebuilt and the roof and one side have been painted, and she has come out of the shed to have the other side painted now. The finishing touches will be the crests and lining.


The TPOs are now receiving attention from Wendy & Bernie and 80318, having been given a nice pink undercoat, is now getting its top-coat of red.

The 141 is now resplendent in its new livery (after several shades of blue)

Brian, Sally & Natalie attended the Tendring Show, hopefully some business will come from that.
