5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe arrives at Coleshill Parkway with 1Z60 Leicester - Tyseley, a Vintage Trains loaded test run, partly for 5043 after some winter maintenance and partly to try out the GUV van with extra water capacity behind the loco prior to a number of long distance non stop runs, the Tyseley example being painted all over Brown as opposed to the Maroon vehicle hired from WCRC on previous occasions, though not an authentic colour for a GUV, GWR bogie vans including Siphons wore a similar scheme.

This is what Coleshill looks like AFTER the white balance has been altered, so you can imagine how orange the place looks at night in reality!.
