It's Grim Up North...

I thought it would be a good idea to keep all my stuff in one thread, so here it is.

Currently in the paint shops:

Another trip from my 'comfort zone', it is a livery I do like. This is the Riviera HST, and being a predominatly blue livery, the mapping is providing some challenges for the XC livery. Can't do much about the TGS of course, but I will arrive no doubt at some compromise :) .

Cheers,
Richard

Tbf to Richard there are far more liveries afforded by modern privatisation than the 80s and 90s have, unless he really fancied an awful job of creating sets of properly colour matched stock so scenarios look much slicker. But that job sounds dull as ditchwater just typing it!

That looks spot on Rich! HST has always been a favourite of mine and the Cross Country livery suits it. :)
