D5830 Woodthorpe 12 September 2009

D5830 passes Woodthorpe on the Great Central Railway with the 2A05 09:40 Loughborough to Leicester North service, during the line's Diesel Gala on 12 September 2009. The loco's gold ochre livery is not strictly accurate, as D5830 never carried this distinctive colour scheme in mainline service. However, one member of the class did for a time in the 1960s. Unfortunately that locomotive (D5579, latterly 31400) was cut up in 1993. D5830's final TOPS classification was 31463. Gold ochre on a train of green coaches - some colour combination!
