Wednesday 1st May 2019 - T2 centenary launch day

President Andrew Scott addresses the gathering- John Hunt

The NELPG launched its Q6 / T2 locomotive in North Eastern Railway 1917 livery as part of the locomotive's centenary year commemorations. NELPG members and guests gathered around the locomotive at noon today for a ceremonial unveiling of the livery. A bottle of the traditional Newcastrle Brown Ale was poured over the running board, and after the speaches, the gathering boarded the 12.30 for a run to Pickering and back behind the T2.
