London, Midland & Scottish lined Crimson, very striking.

but also have always like the BR sector liveries, not so much the two tone grey, but the logos. my favourite is the Coal Sector logo. :)

Steam - BR green and LNER apple green. I do like others as well.

Diesel - BR green and Network Rail yellow.
Why are the locos I want, in the liveries I want, always either non existent, out of stock, discontinued or collectors club only/limited editions?

I used to be with it, but now what I'm with is no longer it and what's it is somehow strange and confusing.

Locos: Caley Blue or LNER A4s in Garter Blue.
Coaches: LNWR plum and spilt milk, or British Railways blood and custard. (LMS look good too as do BR Maroons, and teak for older periods)
Wagons: multicoloured but dirty PO (Bachmann, Airfix, Mainline, Dapol etc)

Steam: Red/white lined BR black with lettered 'BRITISH RAILWAYS' or the early lion-over-wheel logo- smart, neat and simple.

Diesel/electric: same as steam with yellow ends, or large-logo BR blue with the wraparound yellow ends. I'd probably choose the black on 'my' railway.

Coaches: 'Blood n custard' or the WR 'chocolate and cream'

Freight- something basic- probably a mid grey as they'll end up that colour anyway :lol:
