With its move to Crewe upcoming, LNER A4 No. 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley has emerged from the National Railway Museum in York.
The A4 has appeared outside the workshop at York for the first time since its boiler was lifted into place back in November 2019.
Sir Nigel Gresley is currently in a temporary semi-matt black finish which will protect the locomotive as it moves to Crewe for final overhaul work.
Once this final work is complete, the locomotive will be outshopped in BR Express Blue, as this was voted in favour of by the SNGLT membership.
A provisionally agreed programme means that we should see Sir Nigel Gresley returned to steam in Spring 2022 – subject to work being completed.
