When 1305 was delivered to the East Lancs Railway it was covered in graffiti so it was given a quick coat of green paint to get it in service.

A few years ago when it came time to give it a decent repaint there was some panel work which needed to be replaced but unfortunately it uncovered the dreaded asbestos and has been sidelined ever since.

These shots by Amy Adams shows it sidelined at Bury Bolton St
