    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! :p

    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 :)

    "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..."

    The irony of a King named after a 14th century monarch wearing recycled Caledonian livery was evidently lost on the Sir Humphreys in Marylebone!
