Railway

Paint shop

Penlowry

Well the railcar is in the paint shop.

I have always known what the exterior would be but wasn’t so sure about the interior. It depended a bit on what was available and I thought would look good.

I eventually plumped for Phoenix BR rail grey for the third class saloon and vestibule floor, Humbrol satin 131 green for the third class seats and floor of the first class saloon, LNER teak for the tables and saloon internal partitions, and Railmatch Midland Railway Red for the first class seats to look a bit like Chesterfield Oxblood colour.

The underframe and driver’s seats were painted in Humbrol Matt black 33 (which looks glossy in the photo as it was still wet at the time.

I’ll add some oily colours to the engine area before considering it complete.
