That's a very interesting point, George.  I agree completely (although I only ever saw blue ones in BR service).

To me, and I happily acknowledge that it is purely a personal preference, the slippery slope commenced with the small warning panel and got steeper and more slippery thereafter.  Although the 'Western' class in green with a small yellow panel looks good... but not as good as a 'Castle'!

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Having grown up in the BR Blue era, I must say the green liveries are nicer, *but* the blue ones are more "real" to me, if you see what I mean.
