89 East Coast 20110906 About time this one was updated, eh? Fictitious Liveries 2011
A1 InterCity Swallow 20081119 InterCity Swallow on steam? The stripes run out of room. Fictitious Liveries 2008
A1 LMS Red 20081119 Hmm. Fictitious Liveries 2008
A1 LNER Apple Green 20081118 Created for the A1 Trust, this was made to give an impression of how Tornado would look once painted. The real thing has now been unveiled - much shinier than this! This image appeared in Steam Railway Magazine. Fictitious Liveries 2008
A1 LNER Apple Green 20081118 Personally I prefer this! Fictitious Liveries 2008
A1 National Express East Coast 20081118 Is this new-build loco the start of a fleet? Perhaps it's the reason why so few 91s have been repainted... Fictitious Liveries 2008
55 DRS Blue 20081008 The DRS Deltic... PLEASE - before anyone else comments that gosh DRS have actually bought this loco in real life, yes I know - that's why I made the image. 1300 views in the first 24 hours! Fictitious Liveries 2008
56 Romanian Blue/Red 20080904 Close up of the Class 56 on display in faded Romanian livery at BH. Fictitious Liveries 2008
Ter Southern 20080904 More from Barrow Hill's 10th Anniversary Gala. Southern sent one of their express locos to the event. Fictitious Liveries 2008
26 InterCity Scotrail 20080903 Kozzy's superbly restored 26404 in ScotRail livery at Barrow Hill's 10th Anniversary Gala. Fictitious Liveries 2008
GW National Express East Coast 20080829 National Express East Coast look elsewhere for traction inspiration. Fictitious Liveries 2008
55 HNRC 20080801 Had to be done... Fictitious Liveries 2008
Pr First Barbie Neon 20080701 fGW on GWR. Fictitious Liveries 2008
87 BR Blue 20080606 Sorry - not a fictitious livery - a real, unaltered photo of 87002 as it was rolled out today, 6th June 2008. Fictitious Liveries 2008
43 Virgin Red/Grey 20080507 How about a no-yellow Virgin HST... Fictitious Liveries 2008
55 BR Blue 20080507 It's amazing what difference a yellow end makes. Perhaps this needs an FP window surround. Fictitious Liveries 2008
89 InterCity Executive 20080507 Thinking about how alien British locos look without yellow ends (recent debate on the Bulgarian 87 livery a case in point), I started to wonder what existing liveries would be like without them. Here's InterCity Executive with no yellow. Fictitious Liveries 2008
47 BR Blue/Grey 20080506 Here's a 47 in plain Rail Blue - I'm taking the liberty of assuming that some nod to style would be given, and added some Rail Grey around the windows. Odd, isn't it? Fictitious Liveries 2008
87 LoadHaul 20080429 One of the early suggestions for 87002's next livery... Fictitious Liveries 2008
87 Other 20080416 Yep, here's one of several dozen mockups created to establish a livery for the exported 87s. This had to be based around the BRC corporate colours of green and yellow - not the easiest to work with. Still. There you go. Real Applications
87 Other 20080416 Since every reaction I've so far seen about the Bulgarian livery has included the word 'rancid' I wondered whether it might be the absence of something quintessentially British from the scheme. Does it look as bad now? Fictitious Liveries 2008
304 London Midland Green 20080307 Overcrowding solution for peak-hour LM services? Fictitious Liveries 2008
66 DB Blue 20080229 DB blue 66 complete with new standard anti-spotter variable headlight. Fictitious Liveries 2008
66 DB Red 20080229 This is a really quick rendition of a 66 in DB red livery. So there. Fictitious Liveries 2008
55 National Express East Coast 20080226 Well, it had to be done! Fictitious Liveries 2008
55 National Express East Coast 20080226 Here's a modernised version Fictitious Liveries 2008
83 Other 20080226 Following the repaint of a Polish '83' into Electric Blue, here's what a British 83 might look like in PKP Regional's new livery. Fictitious Liveries 2008
EP07 BR Blue 20080226 An alternative BR livery on a Polish '83'! Fictitious Liveries 2008
89 National Express East Coast 20080214 It's faster than a 90... Well you never know... Stranger things have happened! Here's an image I made a little while ago. Fictitious Liveries 2008
EP07 BR Electric Blue 20080214 Here's one that came true. I created this mock-up of a Polish EP07 to assist with the repaint of a real EP07 for a special event. It was obviously convincing, as two magazines printed it as the real thing! The real loco, EP07-1051, can be seen in the inset photo by R. Boduszek. Fictitious Liveries 2008
NG BR Blue/Grey 20071028 Another narrow gauge fantasy... The WHR (reopened by BR in the 1970s), just as sectorisation is kicking in... Fictitious Liveries 2007
DVT BR Blue/Grey 20071027 Following on from the earlier DVT blue/grey images, a lot of people have suggested HST-style blue/yellow. Well, here it is: can anyone suggest a reason why this livery wouldn't be permitted on a DVT? Fictitious Liveries 2007
142 Network SouthEast 20071013 Network Pacer! Created as a commission, the original for this image was taken by Allan Hedley - thanks to him for permission to reproduce here. Fictitious Liveries 2007
86 Hull Trains 20071013 Can't think what provoked this one. Fictitious Liveries 2007
NG Regional Railways 20071009 If, like the GWR and SR before it, BR had operated narrow gauge lines... Of course, whether Regional Railways would have kept the copper as shiny as the Heatherslaw chaps do is open to question. Fictitious Liveries 2007
DP2 BR Blue 20070920 Here's the FP version! 49045 Fictitious Liveries 2007
A2 BR Blue 20070920 Well, it's an A2 in BR Blue. Fictitious Liveries 2007
DP2 BR Blue 20070919 Preserved Class 49, 49008 'Thunderer' in BR Blue at Barrow Hill on 15th September 2007, undergoing engine repairs.

(Class 49 - one before 50 - geddit? DP2? Oh dear.)
Fictitious Liveries 2007
Lion BR Blue 20070906 A Pride of Lions: 3. If, like the Brush 'Falcon', BR had taken Lion into capital stock, maybe it would have reached Rail Blue. (It would have probably had a different running number too.) Fictitious Liveries 2007
Lion BR Large Logo Blue 20070906 A Pride of Lions: 4. If BRCW had built the Sulzer-engined Type 4s instead of Brush, maybe this would have been a familiar sight around the country. (Running number for illustrative purposes only.) Fictitious Liveries 2007
Lion BR Two-Tone Green 20070906 A Pride of Lions: 2. A 1961 illustration by BRCW showed Lion wearing what looks like (in the B&W shot) two tone green. (It also showed the number D8500...) Fictitious Liveries 2007
Lion InterCity Swallow 20070906 A Pride of Lions: 5. Finally, Lion dressed up in full INTERCITY Swallow regalia, as might have been the case if the BRCW design had been perpetuated to a production run.

I'm outa here..
Fictitious Liveries 2007
Lion Other 20070906 A Pride of Lions: 1. First of five images depicting BRCW prototype 'Lion' sitting in the yard at Barrow Hill alongside a 37 and 73!

OK, not a fictitious livery, but an experiment to see if the BRCW prototype could be recreated from bits of a 47, 33, 20 and 83!
Fictitious Liveries 2007
101 First Barbie Revised 20070902 TransPennine Express luxury... Fictitious Liveries 2007
390 Virgin Red/Silver 20070902 *** Note to environmentalists, people who are unable to read captions, or people who haven't noticed the name of the site: THIS IS A DOCTORED IMAGE!!!!! ***

I did this one a while ago following a thread about how uninteresting Pendos and their ilk are due to lack of clag and thrash and all those massively important things.
Fictitious Trains 2007
51 InterCity Executive 20070831 Super Deltic 2: InterCity Executive Fictitious Trains 2007
51 InterCity Scotrail 20070831 Super Deltic 3: InterCity ScotRail Fictitious Trains 2007
51 InterCity Swallow 20070831 Super Deltic 4: Full-blown INTERCITY Swallow. Fictitious Trains 2007
51 BR Blue 20070827 Super Deltic 1: Another one I've wanted to do for ages - the Super Deltic. No1. This image is based on the official EE drawings published in Brian Webb's book: 4600hp, Class 50-style body, etc. The only compromise is the fuel tanks which are straight off a production 55. Fictitious Trains 2007
66 EWS Red 20070826 What a British Shed might look like. I've been meaning to try this for a while, adding a more 'British' body to a 66. I'm sure there are other ways of doing it, but here's mine. Fictitious Trains 2007
04 LoadHaul 20070824 Yep, Load Haul still looks good on just about anything... Fictitious Liveries 2007
93 Virgin Red/Silver 20070824 What if Virgin West Coast had opted for loco and stock instead of EMUs? Fictitious Trains 2007
31 Network SouthEast 20070822 Just to see if it could be done - a scrap-line of NSE 31s, two in old-style and two in later-style.
By the way, for those wanting them ex-works, the condition of the locos in the original shot determines the condition of the locos in the reworked image. Scrap locos stay scrap, shiny ones stay shiny. Usually.

220 BR Blue/Grey 20070820 Voyages of Discovery 2... Plain old InterCity blue/grey on a Voyager. Fictitious Liveries 2007
220 InterCity Swallow 20070820 Voyages of Discovery 3... Voyager in IC Swallow livery. Fictitious Liveries 2007
220 Railfreight Triple-Grey 20070820 Voyages of Discovery 1... OK, so not something that immediately springs to mind with Voyagers. Fictitious Liveries 2007
220 Royal Mail Red 20070820 Voyages of Discovery 4... They must be good for something... Fictitious Liveries 2007
220 Stagecoach 20070820 Voyages of Discovery 5... Curiously this version of Stagecoach livery (with East Midlands Trains branding) on a Voyager. EMT Meridians now carry a 'more swirly' version of Stagecoach livery, obviously much better than my version. Fictitious Liveries 2007
04 BR Blue 20070813 I'm not sure if this is actually fictitious (other than the TOPS number), but what the heck. Fictitious Liveries 2007
04 InterCity Mainline 20070813 InterCity Mainline 04, anyone? Fictitious Liveries 2007
33 Jaffa Cake 20070813 If Jaffa-Cake livery had spread more widely... Fictitious Liveries 2007
37 Midland Mainline Blue 20070813 Midland Main Line abandon units in favour of classic traction. Fictitious Liveries 2007
43 Stagecoach 20070813 A Stagecoach-liveried HST, developing the theme of what if Stagecoach had the 51% share in Virgin Trains. Fictitious Liveries 2007
390 Arriva Cross Country 20070813 Another application of Cross Country's proposed new livery - what might have been if more of the XC network was electrified. (Update: now that the livery has started to be applied for real, XC have opted for a dark red instead of grey/black for the darker areas.) Fictitious Liveries 2007
25 Railfreight Triple-Grey 20070812 One for fans of Rats and McRats. 25 in Trainload Metals, and how the 27s might have looked if retained for Glasgow-Edinburgh push-pull runs (yes, I know it's a 26). Fictitious Liveries 2007
33 Railfreight Grey (Red Stripe) 20070812 Class 33 in Railfreight red-stripe livery. Fictitious Liveries 2007
86 One Anglia 20070801 As oneAnglia vanishes under the new National Express branding, here's a reworking of one of the first Fictitious Liveries I ever did - one livery on an 86. The original version (made for the first Anglia 86 farewell tour) can be seen in the 2004 gallery. Fictitious Liveries 2008
86 Arriva Cross Country 20070710 Now that Arriva have won the Cross Country franchise from Virgin, here's a little glimpse of what their proposed livery (based on mock-ups shown on their website prior to launch) might look like on some traditional XC stock. (Update: now that the livery has started to be applied for real, XC have opted for a dark red instead of grey/black for the darker areas.) Fictitious Liveries 2007
DVT BR Blue 20070119 If the DVTs had arrived before the dawn of InterCity livery, perhaps they'd be given the loco treatment. Well, looks like this isn't fictitious any more! DVT 82115 now bears this scheme, albeit with black window frames, and yes, they did get the idea from here! Fictitious Liveries 2007
DVT BR Blue/Grey 20070119 Or perhaps a straightforward carriage style... Fictitious Liveries 2007
DVT BR Blue/Grey 20070119 Or maybe with a bit of styling. Fictitious Liveries 2007
40 Network SouthEast 20070119 Nope, can't think of an excuse for this either. Fictitious Liveries 2007
153 GWR Chocolate & Cream 20070119 The 153 returns in GWR livery. Fictitious Liveries 2007
370 BR Blue/Grey 20070119 Thank heavens for InterCity livery... Fictitious Liveries 2007
NC22 Other 20070119 And now for something completely different. Fictitious Trains 2007
205 InterCity Swallow 20061201 I'm trying to image what circumstances might have caused this... A Thumper in InterCity Swallow. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
205 Jaffa Cake 20061201 If LSE "Jaffa Cake" livery had become more widespread... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
205 Southern 20061201 Southern Thumper Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
89 BR Two-Tone Green 20061122 Deltic-style two-tone green for this East Coast racehorse. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
89 BTC Black & Silver 20061122 Since it's cheaper and quicker to apply fictitious colour schemes in Photoshop, here are a few that the 89 won't be wearing! If BTC black and silver had persisted over the decades... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
89 Other 20061122 I've always been partial to orange and black... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
89 GNER 20061002 This image was created to help raise awareness of the AC Loco Group's appeal to save 89001 - fortunately it seems to have worked! Fictitious Trains 2006
37 Other 20060826 You can't tell, but it's actually been lowered on its suspension too... Fictitious Trains 2006
37 Other 20060826 ... and here's the effect after dark. Fictitious Trains 2006
86 Northern Rail 20060804 The whiter variation of the Northern Railways livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
86 Northern Rail 20060804 The lilac version of the Northern Railways livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
372 InterCity Swallow 20060804 If the Government and BR had persevered, we might have seen APT-S in service on the WCML. Fictitious Trains 2006
391 Virgin Red/Silver 20060804 A subtle one this: Pendolino with decent sized windows! And no logo on the nose - I don't know why having one there bothers me, but it does. Fictitious Trains 2006
390 Network Rail Yellow 20060803 In Japan the "Doctor Yellow" high-speed track measurement trains are often newly built trains (or nearly new conversions). If the same policy applied in the UK, maybe we'd see something like this. Original photo © Andy Appleton. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
WC Stagecoach 20060803 Rebuilt West Country in South West Trains livery - not as easy or effective as on the streamlined Pacifics. White paint on a steam loco? Hmm. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
153 BR Blue/Grey 20060801 A diesel unit for a change: 153 in BR Blue/Grey. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
153 Nightstar 20060801 Revealed! The low-budget alternative to Nightstar, providing overnight travel to Europe from the Regions. Passengers at Blaenau Ffestiniog board the 17:23 to Paris. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
86 Northern Rail 20060801 I've read that the Northern 86s are to be used, Top 'n' Tail with ex-Anglia Mk2s, on a new Crewe-Preston stopper (Crewe; Winsford; Hartford; Acton Bridge; Warrington BQ; Earlestown; Newton-le-Willows; Wigan NW; Euxton; Leyland; Preston). It must be true because here's a shot of 86262 on the rear of the press-launch special, calling at the rebuilt Earlestown station. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
50 Arriva 20060730 By popular demand, a 50 in Arriva livery... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
89 LoadHaul 20060730 More proof, as if it were needed, that Loadhaul looks good on just about anything. An 89 in this case. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
390 GNER 20060729 For a while in the early 2000s there was talk of GNER buying a couple of Pendolinos... The yellow panel is deliberately at odds with the streamlining, in keeping with reserved styling of the rest of GNER's fleet. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
390 Stagecoach 20060729 It's easy to forget that 49% of Virgin Trains was/is owned by Stagecoach (Virgin holding the other 51%). If the percentages had been the other way around... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
390 InterCity Swallow 20060728 Pendolino in InterCity Swallow livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
55 Northern Rail 20060727 I can't yet think of a scenario where this would ever have happened in reality, but who cares? Deltic in Northern Rail livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
86 Northern Rail 20060727 For my sister - some proper traction! 86 in Northern Rail livery (one of them, anyway). Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
GW First Barbie Neon 20060727 One for Great Western fans... Incidentally the 0-6-0 diesel was already that colour, and the out-of-gauge guy on the furthest Prairie is a certain Mr Waterman. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
87 Other 20060703 Another possible destination abroad for 87s is rumoured to be Bulgaria. Here's one in standard Bulgarian Railways Red. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
87 Other 20060703 ... and in the Blue/Yellow livery applied to certain AC electrics in Bulgaria. In response to the enquiry below, the number is based on the Bulgarian system and is just the next available electric class number. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
14 BR Green 20060609 Another master-and-slave combination. Fictitious Trains 2006
54 BR Blue 20060609 Another loco combination not seen in the UK is the double-loco. Here's a 56-based pairing in BR Blue. Fictitious Trains 2006
54 BR Large Logo Blue 20060609 The same pair in Large Logo. Fictitious Trains 2006
N3b Other 20060529 CP N3b 3716 on the Kettle Valley Railway, 21st May 2006. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
20 Dutch 20060508 To stop the rising tide of complaints that there are no 20s on this site, a pair of them in Dutch. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
20 BR Blue 20060501 Class 20 'Bone'. A lower powered alternative to the 58? Fictitious Trains 2006
20 BR Blue 20060501 Class 20 'Drone'. With the exception of the Class 13, there have been no master-slave / cow-calf units in the UK. Here's a what a cabless 20 slave unit might look like. Fictitious Trains 2006
37 First Barbie Neon 20060427 First Nightclub liveried ScotRail 37s... There's not really enough space on the bodyside for all those swirls, though! Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
WC Southern 20060425 West Country Pacific in Southern livery. Thanks to Steve Roffey for use of the original photo. (Congratulations to Eddie Bellass for being the first to spot the odd buffer beam reflection!) This image appeared in Steam Railway (no 323). Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
52 First Barbie Neon 20060424 An update of the First Barbie Nightclub Western, using the finalised livery design. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
87 Royal Mail Red 20060424 Rumours that two 87s might receive Royal Mail livery prompted this illustration. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
40 Dutch 20060423 The dutch 40 has appeared here before, but here's a better view of it. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
40 InterCity Swallow 20060423 InterCity 40; a bit faded. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
43 BR Large Logo Blue 20060422 A common request is for an HST set where the power car is painted as a locomotive: here's the large logo 43 on a rake of blue-grey Mk3s. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
18 BR Blue 20060422 Class 18 'Octogronk'. Avoid tight curves! Fictitious Trains 2006
71 BR Large Logo Blue 20060419 Class 71 in Large Logo Blue - this wouldn't work on the other side! Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
71 Connex 20060419 Connex 71. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
71 Network SouthEast 20060419 Revised Network SouthEast on a 71. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
71 Southern 20060419 A 71 into the present with Southern livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
87 Virgin Red/Grey 20060418 The UK's answer to TGV Duplex? 20,000hp and double-decker Mk3s departing Preston. Fictitious Trains 2006
Tram Regional Railways 20060413 Extending the BR theme a bit further... Coronation in Regional Railways livery. Trams
Tram BR Blue 20060401 If Britain's tramways had been seen as part of the national rail network, perhaps Blackpool in the 1970s would have looked something like this! Trams
Tram Blackpool Metro 20060401 Into the 2000s, a Coronation in modern route-specific colours. Trams
Tram Blackpool Transport 20060401 The Coronation Railcoaches were withdrawn in the 1970s - had they survived into the 1990s, they may well have received the final green and cream Blackpool Transport livery. Trams
56 InterCity Swallow 20060330 Would 56s have made good passenger locos? That would depend on whether InterCity livery suited them. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
77 InterCity Swallow 20060330 There are a lot of "if"s in this image... Class 77 in InterCity Swallow livery, as might have been seen if the LNER plan to electrify the GCR to London had been carried out, and if route had stayed open, and if a larger fleet of EM2s had been built (27 were originally planned), and if they'd still been in traffic in 1990... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
88 Railfreight Triple-Grey 20060325 Railfreight Distribution version of the AC Modular Loco. Fictitious Trains 2006
88 Railfreight Grey (Red Stripe) 20060324 An alternative Class 88 design - the AC modular loco, proposed at about the same time as BREL's modular diesel. Fictitious Trains 2006
86 Railfreight Grey (Red Stripe) 20060323 An 86 modelling red-stripe railfreight - strangely never applied to any ACs in service. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
86 Romanian White/Maroon 20060321 One of the more recent rumours doing the rounds is the possible export of 86s to Romania. Here's one in Romanian State Railways livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
92 SNCF Fret 20060320 With SNCF poised to launch their own UK operation, here's a 92 in Anglicised SNCF Fret livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
92 SNCF Fret 20060320 If SNCF had taken their 92s away for internal use in France, they might have received the full SNCF Fret livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
370 Eurostar 20060320 In the 1980s there was a vision of APTs heading for Paris via the Channel Tunnel... Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
Met InterCity Swallow 20060320 The Metropolitan always considered itself a Main Line company. Met Bo-Bo in InterCity Swallow livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
9F BR Blue 20060319 9Fs in plain BR Blue - which they would undoubtedly have received if they had lived out their planned lifespan in traffic. This image appeared in The Railway Magazine (Jul 2006). Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
9F BR Large Logo Blue 20060319 9Fs in Large Logo Blue. This version seems to work better than my previous attempt! Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
9F Railfreight Grey (Red Stripe) 20060319 A reworking of the 9Fs in Railfreight Red-Stripe livery. Original photo kindly provided by The Railway Magazine (first published in The Railway Magazine, Jul 2006). Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 2
92 Fastline Freight 20060317 92s in the new Fastline Freight livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
APT-E InterCity Executive 20060308 Alternative Realities: an InterCity liveried production-series Gas Turbine APT (built 1974-75) awaits its fate following withdrawal in the late 1990s. Fictitious Trains 2006
A4 GNER 20060306 By popular demand, A4s in GNER livery. Not quite as imposing as the Virgin scheme. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
CO/C Underground Red White/Blue 20060306 CO/CP stock in the current Underground livery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
88 InterCity Swallow 20060301 Here's what an electric version of the HST might have looked like. Headlights moved purely for curiosity's sake. Fictitious Trains 2006
370 LMS Red 20060228 APT-P in LMS red. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
55 Network Rail Yellow 20060226 First spotted lurking behind the Loadhaul Bone - Network Rail Old Measurement Train Deltic! Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1

43 LNER Apple Green 20060225 In the interests of fairness, here's how an HST might look under LNER ownership. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
58 LoadHaul 20060225 Did this combination ever happen in real life? Loadhaul 58. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
43 GWR Chocolate & Cream 20060224 One common suggestion is for an HST in Great Western livery. Here's one in Chocolate and Cream, assuming the 125s fit into the GWR's "railcar" concept. (I'm not the first to do Chocolate and Cream on an HST, but I thought I'd have a go anyway.) Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
43 GWR Green 20060224 Traditionalists might prefer (or not!) a more "locomotive" feel for a GWR-liveried power car. Green changing to Chocolate and Cream to the rear. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1

WC Stagecoach 20060223 A pair of SWT Bulleid Pacifics head for the West Country from Waterloo with a rake of Mk3s in tow... My entry for a 2005 modern-livery competition applied to an original photo by Jon Bowers (see link on home page). Thanks to Jon for use of the photo. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
Met BR Blue 20060223 Sarah Siddons as she might have looked under different ownership. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
Met Underground Red White/Blue 20060223 Not an easy loco to edit - lots of raised bits and lining. Here's what a Metropolitan Railway electric loco might look like in the current Underground livery. In case you're wondering why it doesn't have red doors, generally speaking only passenger doors are painted red on Underground stock. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
15 BR Research Blue/Red 20060222 Faded Research Division Class 15. More glamorous than train heating, anyway! Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1

9F BR Large Logo Blue 20060220 People often say that 9Fs and the like would look good in large logo livery. I'm not convinced ... A better rendition of 9Fs in Large Logo Blue can be found in a later gallery. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1
A4 Virgin Red/Silver 20060220 New trains were promised if Virgin won the East Coast franchise... :) A4s in Pendolino-style Virgin livery. This image appeared in Steam Railway (no. 323) and The Railway Magazine (Jul 2006). Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1

86 BR Large Logo Blue 20060211 Another common livery never seen on an AC (except for 82008 in preservation) - large logo blue. Fictitious Liveries 2006 Part 1

43 Nanking Blue 20050919 On the blue theme, here's an HST power car in Nanking Blue (Blue Pullman) livery. Well, the HST concept did spring at least partly from the 1950s units. (Incidentally, this image was created before the recent relaunch of the Blue Pullman brand - good timing!) Fictitious Liveries 2005
90 Network SouthEast 20050919 Just curious to see a 90 in revised NSE (can't bear the thought of the clash between the angles of early NSE and the 90's front end...) Fictitious Liveries 2005
43 Other 20050916 If only the naming of an HST power car to commemorate the 50th anniversary of 'DELTIC' could have been accompanied by some imaginative re-liverying! Fictitious Liveries 2005
43 Stagecoach 20050916 SWT HST ... ? Fictitious Liveries 2005
43 BR Large Logo Blue 20050915 HST - large logo style Fictitious Liveries 2005

55 BR Blue 20050726 Split-box Deltic anyone? Fictitious Trains 2005
45 First Barbie Original 20050719 Transpennine Express - Peak Style Fictitious Liveries 2005

84 InterCity Executive 20050627 If only the 84s had been more reliable... This and the following images show the variations on InterCity livery as applied to 86s and 87s. This is the original style InterCity Executive. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 InterCity Executive 20050627 After only two or three locos had received the original InterCity Executive, it was revised with a full wrap-around grey band, and repositioned nameplates. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 InterCity Executive 20050627 InterCity Executive was further amended with the return to a full yellow panel below the cab windows. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 InterCity Mainline 20050627 After Sectorisation, InterCity Executive was replaced by InterCity Mainline and InterCity Swallow - this is Mainline. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 InterCity Swallow 20050627 InterCity Swallow livery - most Mainline locos eventually received Swallow. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 InterCity Swallow 20050627 This is an interpretation of the InterCity Swallow livery applied to Class 90s and 91s. Fictitious Liveries 2005
84 Virgin Red/Grey 20050627 What might have followed privatisation, if the 84s had been around that long! Fictitious Liveries 2005
306 Network SouthEast 20050617 What if the Ilford 306 had received NSE? Fictitious Liveries 2005

56 Wessex Pink 20050616 56137 in Wessex Pink. Hmm. Fictitious Liveries 2005
20 Other 20050615 With the basic "Blue Circle" corporate image to work with, this was one suggestion for 20169. The finished loco was not very different. Real Applications
37 Other 20050615 Produced to illustrate the HNRC website before any 37s had been repainted, this mock-up proved to be nearly correct. Real Applications
50 One Anglia 20050615 50 in one Anglia Fictitious Liveries 2004
87 Other 20050615 No credit is claimed for the original Porterbrook livery on 87002, however this and other mock-ups were produced to show the revised livery necessary to accommodate the nameplates. Real Applications
52 First Barbie Neon 20050219 Western in FGW psychedelic HST-refurbishment livery. This is the early version of the livery, as applied to two Mk3 coaches for demonstration purposes. An updated version can now be seen in the 2006 gallery. Fictitious Liveries 2004
55 BR Blue/Grey 20050206 When BR first planned BR blue for the Deltics, the designer suggested a blue and grey scheme in place of plain blue. Fictitious Liveries 2004
55 BR Blue/Grey 20050206 Deltic in blue-grey with full yellow end. Fictitious Liveries 2004
