Bristol Barrow Road - Patriot 45504 'Royal Signals'

For those who follow this blog you will remember that after attending the RMweb members day at Taunton in 2011 I purchased a number of P4 locomotives that were painted in LMS livery.

 

One of these was Patriot 5535 in full crimson lake livery and after much thought I made the decision to strip this livery in order to transform the engine into Bristol Patriot

45504 'Royal Signals' in lined British Railways lined green.

 

The loco has spent the last 8 months with Ian Rathbone awaiting its turn in his paint shops and on Friday I collected it.

 

Ian has done a superb job and the 'Royal Signals' now has its BR lined livery and has been lightly weathered.

 

Here are some photos:-

Robin,

 

Very nice indeed. Ian does do a superb job, even if his turn-around time is now quite long.

Did he also do the weathering or has that been done since? This is very well done - just looks right for a used but well cared for express loco. Look forward to seeing it in the flesh, so to speak, at Wells.

 

Cheers,

 

Dave.

Dave,

Ian did the weathering as well. I asked him to a light weathering job similar to his 7mm 45513 in his book on painting.

 

Cheers,

 

Robin
