Very nice,Stuart. My favourite livery..if that’s the correct term..Crimson Lake. I have a photo of this one myself and it’s up there with my favourites.

Thanks John, prefer green myself.....which it now is of course. :)
Just seen your reply, Stuart as I looked for any more of your locos. As I've mentioned in the forum before I tend to rely on alerts and inevitably get caught out.

Well,I didn't know that it's now green. I need to get more photos of it. I did a check and I see that crimson lake was the original livery and nicknamed 'red Stanier' to differentiate it from the black Staniers. I see it's called BR Brunswick green.

Best if I just add this other link that I came across dated December last year. If I'm understanding correctly it's reverted to 45562 'Alberta' too..so no more 45699Galatea ?? In one of the articles I read I think 45699 Galatea replaced 45562 Alberta when the latter was scrapped. I get confused with these name and number changes.
