V2 Repainting

Post by notascoobie » Thu Sep 27, 2018 4:16 pm

Hi. Can anyone please help me out with a query. When was V2 60872 KOYLI repainted from BR black to Brunswick green?

Thanks

I don't have a date Vernon.

But possibly after General Repair in July 1958?

Thanks John, the overhaul date looks likely but I thought they'd all been done by then?

Cheers,

According to Part 6C of the RCTS GBs the last in black was 60843 which entered Darlington Works for a General Repair on 24th August 1959. Interesting that this loco had been to the works several times since the order was given to paint the class green, but none was a General Repair.

Cheers,

John
