Liveries Vol.1Welcome to the first of two special publications covering the liveries of non-steam trains operating on the UK mainland during the period of Nationalisation, 1948-1996. In no way can any publication covering this complex subject include every colour or livery style applied, but I have attempted to include as many as possible of the main modern traction livery and colour variants.
This publication is aimed largely at railway modellers who often seek reference material to super detail either their ready to run or scratch-built locos and multiple unit stock. Illustrations have been carefully selected to demonstrate as many liveries and styles as possible. Not all classes and modifications can be included due to space restrictions, but I sincerely hope readers, and especially railway modellers, will find benefit and inspiration from the contents.
