23/01/06: 47812 at Tapton Junction, a quarter of a mile north of Chesterfield station late on Monday afternoon on this Freightliner route learner turn. It had been around an hour and a half behind schedule for most of the day. This is the first photo of 812 in this two tone green livery seen on this website (as it's the first one I've been sent), the loco was painted at Old Oak Common at the end of last year, and is still owned by Riviera Trains.

24/01/06: The other end of 812 (number 2 end) has a rebuilt front end so looks slightly odd in two tone green (but no less odd than 853 in xp64 blue with flat fronts). Photo'd at Moorthorpe.
