South Western Railway livery modification


Delivered back from Brush on Monday 19th March, 159007 has a modified version of the SWR colour scheme, where the lighter stripe has been changed from grey to blue. This is understood to be the new standard finish.

Three pictures at Salisbury, March 24th. The unit was to re-enter service on the 26th.

The bogies and underframe mounted equipment appear to have received no attention.

Meanwhile 450111 has also been out in the blue stripe SWR scheme since 24th February, when it appeared on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. More pictures. This picture at Eastleigh, 28th March.
