that was me! 
 

as someone else mentioned a few pages back I wonder if they can add on a ‘current guise’ run in whatever livery it comes out in when it emerges from toton paintshop

 

 The general consensus is it will be one of its original intercity liveries but obviously it will gave up to date ohle stickers, cantrail stripes etc 

 

Judging by the number of variations within their announcements for class 37s, I Accurascale will produce it in every available livery.

Registered my interest and I’ve heard from a friend who still working on the railways, he is under the impression that it will emerge from the paint shop in IC Swallow livery.

If that quote is true , that may give a clue as to to who is intending to use it, putting 2 and 2 together

He isn’t 100% sure but from what he’s been told by others in the know, this is the preferred scheme

That looks like cream to me. Yellow is what is on the front of the 66 behind it!

Reminds me of Desert Sand on D1000.

Well I certainly wouldn’t want you to get started on shades of grey.

IF that is undercoat my guess is Network rail.

 

I would not judge it too closely from its current colour. It was that colour when I saw it last summer at Barrow Hill so is not necessarily a new layer of undercoat.

Is this now the longest lived one off in service? It’s been on and off in service for 33 years now :) 

(not counting 86 as it was on test)

I’ve gone for the original Swallow :)

Anyone wanting a model of it "as is" could make do with one of the resin bodies that'll invariably clog up eBay now and a dud Lima chassis, job done.

When we painted our loco BR blue we used light blue undercoat. & a similar shade of yellow to the current 89 on the nose ends .

I have one electric loco, the will fated DJM Electric. I really have little interest in electric locos I have no OHL on my layout and I run mainly China Clay trains. All that said I love iconic British locos and this is a real icon that will find a place in my collection and I my even fit OHL on my layout and, I think it is a wonderful loco. The prototype really needs some TLC and to be brought back to life.
