Locomotive  Liveries

35028  "Clan Line" was built at Eastleigh Works and entered service in December  1948. Thus, from the beginning she was always a British Railways engine  and hence never carried the livery or markings of the Southern Railway.

The  locomotive was outshopped in malachite green and carried this colour until  December 1950. During January 1951 the early British Railways Express  Passenger Blue livery was applied. It was whilst carrying this colour  that she was named on January 15th 1951 by Lord Rotherwick, chairman of  the shipping line who's name she carries to this day. June 1953 saw another  livery change, this time to her final colour, Brunswick Green. In October  1959, having having run 401,005 miles she was rebuilt at Eastleigh Works.

The  following drawings illustrate these liveries and are the work and copyright of Rick Kent. They are reproduced with his kind permission. In order to allow reasonably  rapid down load times, the resolution has been reduced from the original  by about 3 times.
