Schools class 925 ‘Cheltenham’…Done!

Following on from my post Schools class 925 ‘Cheltenham Steams again I am please to report that The National Railway Museums SR Maunsell designed 4-4-0 Schools class No. 925 ‘Cheltenham’ has now emerged into the sunshine at Eastleigh Works fully painted in Bulleid post war malachite livery. A picture of her can be found here on the Mid Hants Railway website.

She will shortly be heading off to the  NRM’s Railfest event at York next month before entering service on the Mid Hants Railway.

Congratulations to all involved at  The National Railway Museum, Mid Hants Railway and Eastleigh Works,  in her overhaul she certainly looks the part.

I can  now confirm, rather than just the previous hint I gave in my previous post on Cheltenham,  that the NRM’s N15 Class 4-6-0 No. 777  ’Sir Lamiel’ is being also repainted into malachite, the pair should look mighty fine together.
