I thought it was good of Michael Pierce to reply to my email with this news - no mention of whether it will be in malachite or Maunsell green but it's a step in the right direction!

Yes, I noticed that bit of information was still missing, so I presume they haven't made a final decision yet. There's still hope for a Maunsell livery.

What do you call Southern Green? The Maunsell Olive which was appliedfor over 15 years, or the awful, garish, gaudy colour introduced by Bulleid and applied to some classes for a couple of years before WW2 black and again for a couple of years after WW2 until nationalisation? I can't see why manufacturers ignore Maunsell olive; I was a train spotter in and around Bournemouth & Poole through WW2 up to about 1949 and don't recall seeing that many Malachite (I usually spell it with an "s")  locos, there were still quite a few in olive, more in wartime black.

If by they you mean the Southern Railway then the anawer would be Maunsell olive, if Dapol  consider their models to be ACCURATE scale models then on the basis of how long a livery was carried at least 2 or more should be Maunsell olive, 2 in BR, 1 in wartime black before they even consider Malachite.

Maybe they are basing their production plans on which liveries Hornby sells well in 00?  ???
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Osborn's are listing an 'exclusive' with an invitation to express interest and to state your livery colour preference.

As we seem to have Michael's attention just now, why not drop him a line?
