The National Railway Museum celebrated 200 years of traction with a spectacular nine-day event at York, from 29th May to 6th June 2004. The NRM requested 84001 for display at the event - unfortunately since completion of its repaint the previous summer, the original equipment side paint had started to flake off (just as the corridor side had done previously), and this meant that the whole side had to be chipped off and repainted from scratch: something we could have done without.

After a fairly frantic bout of restoration, we were able to send 84001 for display looking its best. We were present throughout the event with our sales stand and in the cabs of 84001.
