Guess it's going to be some wait before I can recreate this scene.

Ah well, may have to get some lottery winnings to comission some via Worsley Works scratch  build aids.

Not quite sure where to leave this, but this video: https://vimeo.com/29262675 from about 06:57 has a scene of what I've tentatively identified as D6124 pulling a passenger train through the Scottish Highlands. In case it's of any interest.

Really excellent video, all of its really interesting, electric blue 86's, Blue Pullmans, a superb car train loaded with Cortinas and Transits etc.
I was amazed by was the high proportion (to my modern eyes at least) of First class coaches on the ECML & WCML expresses in those days.

What I'm really interested in is a number of passenger train on the Western (between about 10:30 and 11:30) where the coaches all seem to have a yellow panel in the middle of the rail blue, anu idea what that may be?

Hi
the yellow square you can see was a destination panel that could be clipped on.  IIRC the XP64 stock was fitted with the clips, I guess WR fitted up other stock

Thanks for that, its interesting that on a colour video they stand out like a sore thumb, but having scanned through a couple of old Bradford Barton books with B&W pics they are there in a lot of photos but it didn't register the colour and size.

Presumably they were for set routes only? I don't suppose there is a list? On the video they seem to be on B/G coaches only, so maybe the clips were fitted during the repaints?

Hi ,
Re coaches Michael Harris` book BR Mk2 coaches shows a clear Paddington  Cardiff Swansea plate in yellow on a Mk2 b other photos show a Midland Region MK2c with brackets so worth checking build batches. Book does not help on the matter of routes with plates but does show an XP64 first (M13409) with a blue plate and white destination  information - hardly stands out so I guess many photos look like nothing fitted at a quick glance , the western yellow stands out but perhaps fell from favour as being disruptive to the corporate look - and so much for passenger information!

FAO moderators - sorry if off original topic if it needs moving all yours !
regards
Robert
