    Most of the way between Borle viaduct and Arley on the river side (east) of the line, and between Bewdley and Arley, around Northwood Lane. Probably a few other bits that i can't remember.

    True enough, but very few pre BR coaches are painted in BR livery, usually favoring their big 4 look to allow a match for loco's in the same livery, so it's generally a case of MK1's or nothing for matching liveries, I think the LNER Carriage lot would hire a hitman out on me if I suggested putting the teaks in blood and custard.

    It would be a nice change to see maybe one or two teaks in blood and custard or kept in teak and renumber with BR numerals.

    Unfortunately. The amount of money poured into sourcing and buying teak. It would be a shame to see such a beautiful timber lost under paint.

    Well, the easy answer to that is paint the locos in pre-nationalisation liveries. Simples! Or also realise that combinations of BR liveried locos and pre-BR liveried coaches is far from unprototypical. Repainting didn't happen overnight.

    As for pre-BR coaches in BR liveries: the IoWSR seem to slowly putting their bogie set into early 1950s liveries.

    And in some cases didn't happen at all. I believe that rolling stock got repainted at overhaul so if BR withdrew it prior to receiving a post nationalisation overhaul then it was scrapped wearing pre nationalisation colours.

    From the SVR:

    The authentically themed ‘Great Western’ Spring Steam Gala welcomed just over 3900 passengers against a budget figure of 4000, after last year’s disappointing figure (2189) due to the unseasonable heavy snowfall.
