Steam - I don't care (hate flipping kettles)

Diesel (narrow gauge) - A lovely oil stained yellow with lots of rust bubbles.

Diesel (mainline) - This is a tough call but it's either a sub sector livery, Load-Haul, EWS or BR blue large logo.

For steam, GWR with "Great Western" lettered in full, not the initials.

For diesel, Deltic-style green.

For modern, GNER's nicely reserved blue and red. I can't stand all the garish liveries you see around these days.

Steam- LMS Lined Maroon or black.

Freight- "Big T", EWS, Loadhaul

Passenger- Modern Virgin or GNER

I saw this on eBay, it looks great. Is it a real model, or a respray?
