Following another overhaul, 5786 is due to return to service in early 2013, but this time in the guise of London Transport No. L92. It was in fact owned by LT from 1958 to 1969. The new livery is expected to last for a year (or two) before this 0-6-0PT reverts to its usual paint scheme.

I remember 5786 at Hereford (Bulmers) in silver for the Queens Jubilee. I may have a photo. I will try to find it but I don't think there would be much support for a return to silver livery !! LT maroon will make an interesting change though.
