Pic Of The Week 4

I wonder how long before we all forget Lyd once looked like this?

This shot by Chris Nevard for Model Rail magazine shows our Backwoods Manning Wardle in charge of a Up train at the front left hand corner of the layout.

I maintain this spoof BR black livery suits her much better than the proper Southern colour scheme she wears currently.

Because she's technically a new locomotive, rather than a replica of one of the oringinal L&B engines, it is a moot point, is it not, whether there is any such thing as a 'proper' livery for her?

  1. A lovely shot. Gricer-ish arguments aside, I much prefer grimy black for locomotives...Lyd,(just my opinion) looks a bit wrong in that Southern livery parading up and down the line...very incongruous. But, she's a lovely, lovely engine!
