The "Blackberry Black" hue has been attributed to the use of oily rags to polish the locos after cleaning, leaving a surface sheen which gave the purple effect.

 

The actual paint was "drop black",with a red oxide undercoat and several layers of varnish IIRC (full details can be found in "LNWR Liveries"  from the HMRS, a must for any LNWR enthusiast).
