What livery is this?

Post by pdeaves » Sun May 10, 2020 4:16 pm

The ex-GWR pannier tank in this image is filthy!

The number plates have been removed and stencilled '3619' added in their place. There is no visible evidence of any company crest or initials but these could be present underneath all the dirt.

So to the question. Is this loco in BR black or still in GWR green colours? I mean, it's clearly soot grey, but what paint is supposedly present under it?

A really interesting photo. Any idea what the pipework was about?

No idea at all. It looks to me like it's holding the cab on (not really!). The link was sent to me by someone else; I know no more than is on that page.
