I guess I'll chime in too.. although my Mum used to say if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything :)

Good job on just applying Rule 1 to the max!

That said I don't have a problem with re-paints, I just really don't like the NSE livery on anything, and on such a beautiful locomotive too, its just so jarring!

I think I have to go and look at some black and white photos of GWR branchline services just to give my retinas chance to calm down :)!

I like it. It's a great "what if" (which most of our layouts have at least a tiny aspect of). You mentioned considering the yellow warning panels and I think the small panel would work on the nose where there's even a panel area lined out for it.

Tours stretched all over the network promoting the values and innovations

so, I take it that either it's late / cancelled / overcrowded  :smiley-laughing:

Nope nope, there was never one late train ever.  Never never!  :D

I can verify what Tank is saying here. There were NEVER any late NSE trains. Never once in all the NSE years did I ever stand on the platform at Bat & Ball cursing a late train. It just didn't happen. It was the red speed stripe along the livery that kept them on time.  ::)

BR lined green will be my preference
 Nse had it's time
 Best suited to stations in my opinion and leaflets

Must say I do like to see locos in liveries they may never of carried mostly diesels. But must admit that looks awesome and very well done. Please Flying Scotsman in NSE colours would be awesome..

Oh come on guys (and girls) don't encourage him!
After just coming home from York and the NRM with grandson aged 6 and drooling over Mallard in LNER blue
How on earth does one explain THAT?

Mind I was met with sniggers about me referring to the Flying Banana until they read the description board, but it was in a PROPER LIVERY lol.

I thought you all might like to see my newest model from Mercig Studios.  I think he did a great job. :thumbsup:

I did think about converting it to 3rd rail pickup, but decided against it for now.

There you go converted and ready to run on overhead or 3rd rail. She now complies to ULEZ which will have the Mayor of London's approval.
