97205 (31163 or D5581)

Our Class 31 locomotive had not run for some considerable time and it was stopped with numerous repairs being required: these ranged from a major failure within the air system to having unusable doors and heavy cab corrosion. With your help and donations we have slowly been able to bring this splendid workhorse back to its prime and give it a new lease of life. The fact that it has actually operated on our picturesque line gave us the spur to return it to revenue earning duties and we look forward to seeing her in operation once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted!
