Grey USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 on public view

Earlier today in a move that involved 34092 ‘City of Wells’ (see separate story), ‘Big Jim’, S160 5820 was extracted from Haworth Locomotive Works following its anticipated repaint into authentic U.S.A. Transportation Corp grey.

Prior to leaving the shed in its new guise, 5820 is photographed in the last stages of the repaint

Now looking resplendent in Grey, the locomotive sees the light of day in Haworth yard, and made ready for its place at the head of the Easter weekend services.
