Green livery

Postby Monty » Tue Jun 05, 2018 8:19 am

Hello All,
Can somebody perhaps confirm that lined green livery was applied to the 64xx panniers tanks before 1959 or at least @ the beginning of 1959? I am particularly interested in numbers 6415 & 6419 if anybody can confirm those 2 with photos showing them in green before 1959. Many thanks.

Photos of both are shown in Pannier Papers No.7 [in b & w]. 6415 is shown at Dursley 1/10/60, very grubby, but looks as though it is lined out. 6419 is shown at Plymouth North Road 24/6/58, relatively clean, and definitely lined out.

Thanks for that prompt reply Noel. Just want to now get confirmed that 6415 was in lined green in say around April 1959?
Cheers.
