J15 into LNER Black

15th January 2012

The M&GN Society's J15 celebrates its 100th year in 2012. To mark this, the Stratford-built locomotive's boiler has been retubed to allow it to steam for the remainder of the year and is being repainted into LNER black, numbered 7564. The last time the locomotive carried this livery was back in the mid-1980s, in the days when the line only used to run as far as Weybourne.

The locomotive has been repainted by volunteers in Weybourne shed over the winter months and will be officially unveiled at the M&GN Society's B12 Launch day on the 8th March. The J15 will then feature in the NNR's spring Steam Gala.

The repaint is dubbed by volunteers as a true 'Stratford job', with only the top half of the locomotive being repainted. Despite this, it really does look the part.
