D6710 at Immingham Depot 16th Feb 1969 Old Crest, Pre TOPS.

During the late 60's/early 70's many livery variations appeared as sheds and works obeyed/dis-obeyed instructions on painting loco's. This engine appears to depict the new Rail Blue with white number and info panels inc 'D', but has old B.R. 'Ferret and Dartboard' logo. Further information has come to light(sic) and in fact it may still be in a relatively clean green livery. SEE COMMENTS BELOW?!!. The Loco behind D6710 is D6801. The bright winters daylight( pic taken at around 10.45am on Sunday 16.02.69) reflecting off the snow coupled with Kodak 120 roll film may have created this affect. Just proves you can't believe what you see, or trust your memory!
