43185 has been repainted into 1988 intercity Swallow livery.
It is being unveiled at a 40th anniversary event at the NRM York on Sunday 2nd October.
Due to move Laira to York on Friday morning leaving Laira at 0242, I guess to avoid being seen! Typically I'm not working on Friday morning or I would of gone out a little early to see it leave Laira, as when I work I start at 4am in Plymouth.

To save you getting up that early, you can have it on a fridge magnet:

I think that may have been the first time round!

Travelling upto York with 43002. Two heritage liveries will make quite a photo shot for those that are interested.

The picture is from Paddington, 16th June 1995.

43185 will travel to York paired with BR blue/yellow 43002 'sir Kenneth Grange'. The man himself is guest if honour on Sunday 2nd at the National Railway Museum.

There was a discussion on twitter between GWR & LNER about getting the pair side by side in Paddington next year...very positive it sounded
