Is it? Well, you live and learn - and thank you for putting me straight! I'd be the first to admit I'm far from knowledgeable about liveries, never really having been that bothered one way or the other - except that I really don't like S.R. Malachite Green (way too garish for my liking), or B.R. Blue (which looks a muddy sort of colour, even when new, and rapidly fades to a dingy murk). Oh, and some of the modern TOC liveries look, frankly, grotesque. But it just proves how many of the rivet counters got it wrong - and that includes the writers in the specialist press. I can clearly remember the critical comments made when the news broke that the Crab was to be painted Crimson Lake, and the numbers of comments about "But Crabs were ALWAYS black!" - and I've had plenty of people on the East Lancs and Peak Rail assure me that, though they think she looks very well, "Crabs never carried that livery in LMS days."
