    Right I want no frothing about these livery questions, so all behave youselves....

    a) Is this the same livery that 46229 carried for most of the 80's
    b) is it a legit livery for Galatea.

    Simple yes and no's only!

    Looks very nice. Well done to all at Carnforth. I think that it will upset the purists.

    It does indeed look very nice, green would have made a nice change though :whistle:Has it got beyond Carnforth though as there are no recent updates on RTs?

    Are they going to mess with our heads & release Leander in Green?

    Unfortunately Galatea has apparently failed at Bentham.

    I have heard the same a short while back and being towed back to Carnforth, I was a few miles from home on my way to see the run at Clitheroe or Pleasington. Hopefully it isn't anything too serious.
