E6006 in Lydney Yd., 26-6-04, Charity Gala weekend
What a difference a year makes. Just in time for the charity, 'Anything Goes' gala at the end of June 2004, the DFDA team completed the long process on '6', having spent 100's of hours on electrical, mechanical and exterior restoration.
E6006 is pictured in Lydney Yard on a very cloudy Saturday 26th June.

Just a month before the late June '04 charity gala, 6006 was still receiving external paint and the re-assembly of fittings in one of cabs. Infact, the top coat of electric blue (of which there were several), had yet to make an appearance. The attention to detail around the power unit is evident. Done in situ, it was painstaking to say the least but it does look very good. By the way, ignore the '5' on the blind, it's a bit of mischief by someone!
