    Spotted a very graffiti soiled Class 31 on a low-loader being transported south yesterday.

    Any ideas as to which one and is it on the way to being restored somewhere?

    Thank you.

    Makes sense for the M5. Problem was by the time I thought to post the question (and had access to wi-fi) I couldn't remember with certainty where I had seen it going the other way hence the vagueness. I was going north and saw it probably around Worcester now I've had more time to think it through again.

    31255 has also moved home lately going from the colne valley to the mid norfolk.

    The MNR seems to quite suit having a resident goyle & 255 will finally be able have a proper clearout & leg stretch which it hasn't had for a while as colne valley is a tiny line.

    Can anyone actually confirm 31235 went to Dean Forest Railway, As i messaged the Dean Forest Railway via Facebook and they have said it's not one of their engines and i've seen no photos of it arriving.
    Can anyone enlighten us.
