Hi All, Help needed with this terrier. I am doing a repaint and have no idea whether it's an A1 or A1X.

 

Also would on have ever run in unlined BR black and what would be a suitable number please.

That's an A1 - the A1Xs had a slightly extended smokebox on a saddle and no wingplates. Having a quick look at the RCTS book on Brighton locos, Vol 1 of which covers the Terriers, apparently the only A! to be taken into BR stock was 680s, a departmental loco. It was renumbered DS680 and painted plain black. The number appeared on the bunker side above the legend "C & W Lancing Works". There's a photo on flickr at
