Mini-history - Copyright Kernow Model Rail Centre / Simon Bendall

The collapse of FM Rail (previously Fragonset) in January 2007 saw a considerable number of locos become available for sale. One of these was 31602, which had seen use the previous year on Network Rail infrastructure monitoring trains, and was now grounded as a result of FM Rail’s failure. A sale to Derby-based RVEL was soon arranged thereby allowing the Class 31 to return to traffic. This was followed by a repaint into Network Rail yellow that April, albeit devoid of logos, while naming as ‘Driver Dave Green’ took place in November 2007. In this form, 31602 toured the country far and wide atop a variety of yellow test trains until early 2012, it being particularly popular for working ultrasonic duties. From the spring of 2012 and now owned by British American Railway Services, the newly de-named loco came off hire with Network Rail and moved onto stock transfer work. However, by the end of the year, 31602 was side-lined for repairs that never happened and it was scrapped in 2018.
