Farish Mk 1 coaches BR (SR)


Recommended Posts

In the absence of a Bulleid brake composite I purchased a Mk1 in BR (SR) green.

 

A quick question was the circular BR "crest" on these coaches when they were first painted green?

 

If not can the "crest" be gently removed with some Brasso or similar?

As I recall it was applied to some stock, to be allocated to the named trains such as The Royal Wessex. In the end, it was pretty random as to whether a coach had a crest or not. The Parkin book implies that the crest introduction coincided with the new Maroon, Green and Chocolate/Cream liveries.

Most Southern Region Mk1's in green that I have seen in pictures have generally tended to be without the crest.  If the tampo printing on those is the same as my blue/grey ones then a gently applied sharp cocktail stick will remove the printed on detail easily leaving little if any trace.
