Are the red buffers with grease patches correct for the red stripe Railfreight 56019? or is it just mine that is odd?

Cheers
Mark

Hi ,
Spot on for 56019 - I asked for grease spots to tone down orange and this done and a nice matt finish on rest of orange - almost a scale colour rendition. If you do a google search for 56019 I am pretty certain you will find pics of the beast at rest on Saltley  depot that were the basis.
certainly it was an over application of Orange and it was not changed - I aksed/ suggested it as it was a drag loco for a failure in XC loco hauled days and I know the controller who obtained the loco on the day, giving much relief to passengers and entertainment to crews and linesiders alike. I guess accounts not quite so happy when bill came in!!

Simple answer, yes. From first livery application, most if not all 56s that received the Railfreight red stripe livery had full rail red buffer beams, bodies and heads. Does look rather garish ex works, but was soon toned down with natural weathering in traffic. Here is my model of 019 modelled as she was in the mid to late 90s before withdrawal with correct grills fitted to the No.2 end and a nice weathering. 



Hope this helps Mark.

Cheers, Anthony
