The East Lancashire Railway, along with Mike Kelly (ELR Chairman), has announced that Crab 13065 will return to service in LMS Maroon.
Requests from volunteers had been put forward to see 13065 return from an overhaul in BR Black and numbered 42765.
However, the board has discussed this, and have come to the agreement that the LMS maroon colour has proved popular with visitors and photographers.
This has, therefore, meant that Crab 13065 will appear back from an overhaul in the same LMS red colour that it was found in before overhaul.
Away from the colour decision, repair and overhaul work is still ongoing. Work is progressing towards the locomotive returning to service.
