Bring it on! Nothing wrong with being an unorthodox railway modeller. :lol:

The rain has stopped and the puddle is muddy brown. The ground is still wet in places where the rain hasn't dried yet. :)

As the Calder Railway fleet of locomotives are looking worse for wear in their various blue colours, the new Chairman, Sir Charles Anderson has ordered all the engines to be repainted in Midnight Blue colour.

Locomotives returning for service in their new Midnight Blue livery.

Not quite finished, but here is the new colour scheme for The Calder Railway Company (with the approval of Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway the supporters and part financial backers of the line.) The Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway took full control of the line in 1920; before themselves merged with the LNWR in 1922.

Gone is the original blue of the locomotives to the new Midnight Blue colour. The blue coaches (actually sold as Caledonian Blue) are now Alizarin Blue lower (a mix of deep blue and a deep red) and Yellow Ochre upper.

More of Clarence Dock. The wet ground is drying in places. Mind the puddles. More rain is forecast.
