Dukedog 9017 Steam locomotive
23rd April 2009 "Dukedog" 9017 has been painted into black for the Steam, Steel and Stars 2 Gala at Llangollen.
Black is it's authentic colour although the Bluebell Railway, where it is normally based, like to keep it in green.
Can't think why it looks perfect in black to me!!
