1109 has been the forgotten unit in preservation due to its remote location at the Eden Valley Railway.
The unit runs most weekends and is the staple for m of motive power for the line.
When it arrived on the line it was hastily painted drab green to cover graffiti but for the 2015 season has been given a livery of BR Crimson & Cream, non authentic but looks the part
Seen at Warcop in 2019 1109 looks smart in its non authentic liveries.
once side its painted Chocolate & Cream and the other side is Blood & Custard.
These are liveries the units could of carried in the early days so it doesn't look out of place
