Providing a welcome variation to the standard but somewhat plain green livery, a small batch of six locomotives were repainted with the mid-level Sherwood green band, as part of their overhaul at Derby Works, during 1965.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Solebar fairings, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s): D5040, D5053.
Notes/Period: Majority saw widespread use on the Great Eastern and Great Northern in the mid to late-1960s before being dispersed to the London Midland and Scottish Regions. Answers the call for an Eastern Region machine.
