    Colour is always a vexed issue. 46115 and 35018, as post-1956 BR Green-liveried locos, were both painted with BS244 colour spec paint, which is variously called ‘Deep Bronze Green’ or, funnily enough, ‘Land Rover Green’. Pre-1956 BR Green was...

    Enjoyed your excellent report Oswald T. We must have crossed paths in the Woodrow again!! Got delayed in posting mine but as it's coming from a very different angle, thought I'd add it to the thread anyway. CMEs and the CME of the 14th October...

    CME 14 October 2017 – 45690 Leander hauling 11+POB I decided to take the service train from Blackburn to Preston and join the train there; this would ensure an earlier return home should the trip be delayed for any (autumnal) reason. Mrs W was...
