Owning group the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust held a poll to choose which livery it should appear in when its latest 10 year overhaul was completed. BR green was a clear winner.

As early-morning drizzle gave way to sunshine on Saturday, March 3, the completed locomotive was officially rolled out of its West Shed home at Swanwick Junction at the Midland-Railway Butterley as a crowd of admiring photographers gathered.

The locomotive ran up and down the shed yard, carrying a ŒRoyal Scot¹ headboard which was later removed.
