    I must say that looks better than the blue that's been used on the King....

    I don't care, I think the King looks garish, in my opinion there is only one class of loco that looks equally good in either blue or green.... and it's not a Thompson one either. :rolleyes:

    No sorry of those, I rate Tornado as slightly better that the King with Claud Hamilton as nearest to the A4 in looking right.

    Probably not.
    Green is the only proper colour for a GWR loco!

    Would that be Apple Green, Brunswick Green, Malachite Green or Stroudley's Improved Green - perchance even British Racing Green ? :)

    Double Scot(ch)!
    Double Scotch 2V4.jpg The fine lines of 'Scots Guardsman', are reflected in a large puddle and contrast sharply with the rather brutalist design of the OHLE, as she heads for Lancaster and home with 'The Fellsman' of 01 August 2017.
    This was just a couple of weeks before her withdrawal for overhaul and, hopefully, it won't be too long before it's time to raise a glass or two on her return to main line action.
