War Department and MOD locomotive liveries


Recommended Posts

Has anyone got a good source on what liveries WW2 WD narrow gauge diesel locos would have carried? Specifically numbers and markings and their location.


I'm currently restoring a 2ft gauge 1941 Ruston 20DL and am struggling to work out what it's original 1941 livery would have been beyond probably overall deep bronze green.


I have a WD number on a plate LOD/758173 as well of an image of it carrying the number AD22 at Lydd Ranges in the 70's. But I've seen many different variations on military loco numbering, some carry the lettering ARMY and a short number for example, others have the WD arrow and a generally longer number.


Anyone know of any good literature or places to research this?
