26043 and 45149 - RESTORED!

The restoration teams on both 26043 and 45149 pulled out all the stops at the start of 2013 to make sure both locos starred in the Summer Diesel Gala.

No one was disappointed! Both locos made starring appearances albeit not quite in their final appearances - most noticeable on 45149 which was waiting its top coat of paint.

Unfortunately, 26043 suffered not one, but two traction motor failures over the weekend and its appearances had to be cut short, however, we felt it was a successful weekend and was a great sight seeing both locomotives working trains once again!
