EARM Drewry restoration completed

THE East Anglian Railway Museum’s Class 04 No. D2279 has been repainted in BR green with wasp stripes each end, and now sees regular use at Chappel & Wakes Colne. 

It was away for some time while receiving attention by Peter Briddon at Darley Dale, returning in July 2018.

The Drewry shunter will soon be joined by under-restoration German railbus No. E79963, providing an early-BR look to the museum’s diesel fleet. 

The 0-6-0D was providing ‘driver-for-a-tenner’ experiences up and down the short running line on June 16, as seen here. STUART CHAPMAN
