Always a reliable sign that the end is nigh - new paint on a unit heading towards the scrapyard
There is some preservation afoot though, is there not? I'm sure I read that.
Yes indeed there is:
So is this particular unit being preserved or one like it?
The website answers that for you
It's a Vinyl Wrap, I caught it to New Brighton last weekend.
The problem will be to find a heratige railway where it can be securely stored at a reasonable cost, there are not many. The Swanage railway 4TC group with it's blue grey unit, is still struggling repairing weathering, vandalism and stolen copper to its unit when stored at Derbyshire.
The Clacton Express group gave up on a 309 when they could not find anywhere to store it.
