British Steam Locomotives from long ago
© Don Marshall 2013
This site illustrates the liveries of British steam locomotives and rolling stock and is aimed primarily at the modeller or those who just like looking at beautiful and elegant machinery.The range of colours to be found was almost legion. Lots of shades of greens, reds, blues, black, brown, yellow, even white and lilac !! All decorated with, sometimes, complicated lining in contrasting colours.
What a time it was to go looking at trains.
Enjoy the site.
Currently there are 138 steam locomotives and around 127 carriages all ranging from the 1830s right through to the British Railways era.
So there is plenty to look at, to whet your appetite and to get down to some modelling !! More will be added.
