Members of the Group returned to Wansford Locomotive Shed on the Nene Valley Railway on Saturday 6th of June 2020, following the closure of the shed due to COVID-19, with attention turning to Jacks Green’s cosmetic overhaul.

Recent work has seen primer, and undercoat paint applied to the cab, tank and bunker on the right-hand side. Coupling rods on the right-hand side, coupled wheels on the left-hand side and cab roof have received their first layer of topcoat.
