Remarks & Notes 
The unusual sight of two blue liveried pacific locomotives together. After the nationalisation of British railways in 1948, trials were conducted to decide the future colour of their locomotives. Blue was trailed, but found to be unsuitable due to fading issues. Brunswick green was adopted instead.
