  1. The bell tends to be at the front of the right-hand side of the tender frame.
  2. Excellent pics. gwr.org now points to this page.
  3. The horsebox furthest from the camera does seem to have two windows, the first being very grubby (typical for a horsebox), and is possibly an N4. Not a 'B-set' in the official sense, since they were corridor coaches, which was the norm on the Lambourn line until late days.
  4. Lined green didn't appear on mixed-traffic locos until 1956. Further info
  5. Using rgb and/or hex values (some suggestions) would avoid a paint supplier going through the step of doing a digital image.
  6. Taking something painted to a paint supplier and asking if they have some paint that looks like it seems like you have confidence in your painted thing. Or is the purpose of the exercise merely getting the paint into a spray form?
  7. I did wonder whether to use the term 'outriggers' in the caption of this picture (same loco!), but I eventually chose 'outriders'. Is 'outriggers' an official or better term?
  8. I think the first thing the GWR would have done is put a frame extension on the rear with a larger bunker. The GWR would have fitted a new boiler (I expect they would have had one that fitted that size), so chimney, dome and safety valve would have become standard GWR items.
  9. I know little about these wagons, but am surprised lifting-link brakegear was introduced so early.
  10. Authentic opens are a rarity in RTR, so this is a big tick in a big box.
  11. Post-grouping GWR livery would have been standard unlined green and black. With probably GREAT WESTERN insignia on the tank sides (because, ironically, it was an absorbed engine), but maybe no insignia depending on where the numberplate was placed. It may or may not have received GWR boiler fittings at that stage.
