This is just a quick guest blog post by Ian MacCabe, following our blog post on locomotive liveries:
Probably one of the most beautiful of liveries (is) worn by Gresley N2 No.1744 since its last major overhaul in 2009 and this year will be performing at the Great Central Railway until 17th February.
From 18th February to the 25th March it will be at the Nene Valley ready for the Gala 21st-22nd Feb– unfortunately due to overrunning repairs 1744 will not be visiting the Nene Valley Railway
It will then move to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway from the 26th March to 24rd April. Ready for the GNR Gala 3-6th April
Epping and Ongar Railway will then host the N2 from late April all the way through to early September. When it will then return to its home shed on the Great Central. Please come and say hello.
For more information please see the Gresley Society’s website : gresley.org
Needless to say, it will be well worth catching this delightful 0-6-2T!
