60024 Melton Ross 18 July 1996

60024 was one of the first Class 60s to acquire EWS livery. It is seen here in ex-works condition at Melton Ross on 18 July 1996 with the 6D96 13:00 Welton to Immingham oil tanks. I am convinced that the early EWS repaints used either a slightly different colour or a higher gloss finish, as all later locos seem to look very drab by comparison.
