By June 2012 had been repainted into green livery and now looks very smart, judging by the photographs I have seen.
Thank you for the correction, Anonymous, I now see that this engine entered service as D3690 from Darlington Works on 9 March 1959.It was allocated, in chronological order, to Hornsey, Hatfield, Hitchin and Finsbury Park, and renumbered to 08528 in January 1974, according to the BR Database.
