New project: LMS CCT 37071

121117 NVR 010

Our new project, LMS CCT 37071, is now in position in the shed ready for work to begin on its cosmetic restoration for a static role at Wansford station. The personnel door and step on the end are part of the modifications made to these vehicles for the filming of the James Bond movie “Octopussy” in 1982 and are now arguably an important part of the history of this vehicle…

The observant among you may notice that this CCT is not the same one pictured in the last update. The original plan was to restore the identical ex-LMS CCT shown in the earlier update, but for various reasons it was felt too difficult to safely move to Wansford for restoration without first undertaking fairly substantial work in situ.
