Discussion in 'Steam Traction' started by Eightpot, Oct 4, 2011.
In the world of Rev Awdry's Railway Series I could certainly see this happening, considering how uppity Great Western locos are (much like fans of the GWR in real life), though I can also imagine a King Class being even more uppity saying: "I'm a KING, any livery is the right colour for me! And I'll hear no more about it! I have spoken..." Then puffs off to the water tower all grandly~.
...sorry perhaps overthought this!
It’s a King. Surely royal blue is a more fitting colour than green?
Wasn’t Edward I a Plantagenet? I thought plants were normally green
Even when working The Red Dragon?
"Edwardus Primus Scottorum Malleus" If it's going to stay blue, don't paint a Saltire on it!!
At which point 3822 pipes up "Well, I may be a humble freight engine, painted in plain budget black, but at least I have GWR on my tender: I'm not branded with those ridiculous lions of the foreign oppressors..."
Where's that 'double like' button when one needs it?
The irony of a King named after a 14th century monarch wearing recycled Caledonian livery was evidently lost on the Sir Humphreys in Marylebone!
Next to the 'It's Awful' one.
Ah, the sights and sounds of one of Swindon's finest.
Thank you for that.
