    Whereas some of us prefer to wait until we can see her in her eventual GWR livery. Each to his own.

    Did any of the early Saints survive in original form to receive the BR black livery? I think most of those which lasted (e.g. 2908 Lady of Quality) had received new cylinders with outside steam pipes and curved drop ends during Great Western times.
