For what it's worth, I use the Railmatch versions of Stone 1 & 3. They are rather less pink than the Precision versions and to me sit better on models.

 

The Precision paints I have don't have any noticeable pink hue. GWR building colours have already been discussed at length here, along with several pics (of which some have sadly vanished, along with some whole key posts).

I see we are back to the same discussion we had in the model press all those years ago. I remember  someone gave official (?) formulae for Stone no. 1 and no. 3. IIRC they involved handfuls of pigment in white lead....

 

It is unlikely that much repainting of stations took place between late 1939 and 1948. We had other rather more pressing problems.

Here is a picture of part of the canopy, Birmingham Moor St in 1960:+

Here is the refurbished station in "authentic" 1930s GWR colours:

The Caley and the 68 are in the same platform.

A touch of the Titfield Thunderbolt about that coupling arrangement.

 

I think it's to stop people climbing over it. Or at least stop them wandering too far over where they could get hit by trains using the other track.

St Braivels?

 

[Checked, and I don't think it is, but St B was another example that mouldered on in old paint, I think.]

No idea!! It was originally in the thread I linked to before, but the whole post with it in seems to have vanished. Think it was mentioned to be in Wales somewhere so could be. @PMP could you tell us where this is? Also, as it was originally posted by you and removed, please let me know if you want me to take it down for any reason.

 

I saved it as it was a very close match to the Precision colours (even with heavy weathering).

It’s New Radnor and the image was taken about twelve years ago. The buildings are still standing and part of a camp site, and the owner was very helpful in allowing access for photos.
