Description
At the Cambridge 31A Exhibition while exhibiting MotleyTerminal a punter suggested a BR maroon HST. It’s in the paint shop as of Dec 2014.
Description
According to an article in Model Rail, when the Blue Pullman was first muted it was to be in BR green and black livery. So here it is! The train will have Hornby short MK III coaches in BR green and black windows. Tri-ang Blue Pullman power cars are much cheaper now the Bachmann Blue Pullman has arrived. Tri-ang coaches still expensive!
Description
What if Freightliner bought some 60’s? I have continued the yellow along the lower body - a Motley revision. The 31, well I have got a lot of them and I have the paint and transfers. The Class 60 is Lima and theClass 31 is Tri-ang. Dec 2014.

The two HST photos above awaiting transfers and a final varnish then steps picked out in silver,.
Description
What if Fragonset hired spare HST cars to power their Blue Pullman train? It awaits transfers.
Description
The original livery for the Blue Pullman was BR green with black window surrounds. It would not have stood out much. Great decision to go Nanking Blue!
Description
Will become 61535. Withdrawn from Cambridge in 1959. The number "35" was very much part of my youth with the number being featured in comedy shows like Round the Horn and Beyond our Ken. So what if the Royal Engine was a B12 and was in BR green and lined out in black white lining (I have a lot of it)? Will probably have red coupling rods. Needs pipes on the buffer beam and a front number somewhere. The BR green looks very dark as I painted it straight onto the black plastic.
Description
The Tri-ang TC diesel with pantographs is expensive. I picked this blue TC diesel up for £7.50. After a good clean the motor works well. The roof had been altered and piece of plasticard used to fill the gap. I have added two dummy pantographs. Needs a paint job to restore the yellow around the top.
Description
Tri-ang Utilty Van to be used in Churchill funeral train. It was blue. It will go into Pullman colours.
IN THE PAINT SHOP.
Description
A Dickie Toys body with a change of roof to make it a diesel. I chose Sherwood Green as the main colour as a change from BR green as I see this as a prototype so needed to stand out. Can’t decide how to number it. Have given it a coach roundel as some of the Class 20’s had when deliveredlate 1950’s. The body sits on an early Hornby Bo-Bo HST chassis.
Description
I inherited this once Apple Green LNER Flying Scotsman.Painted it BR green and the wheels in LNER style . Will become 60039 Sandwich. One I coped as a boy and was a Kings + engine. Needs lining out and naming.
Description
Tri-ang Standard Class 3 2-6-2  tank in Tri-ang crimson (Humbrol No 73). Undecided whether to line it out. Matches the Tri-ang suburban Mk 1 coaches

Lima Deltic. Was BR  Corporate blue. After a thorough clean and motor service was painted into GNER blue  to be a Thunder Bird loco to rescue failed trains. Not sure what number and name yet. Might be named THUNDER BIRD as a class 47 was once.
Description
Lima Deltic after a heavy service and missing bits added. I was curious what a Blood and Custard loco would look like. It doesn't look too bad. Will be numbered D6007 as that was the numbers allocated at one time.  No name.
Description
I write children's books about The Magnificent Dancing Circle Snails. There are 4 books so far sitting on Amazon. I have created Circle Rail and collected a Motley assortment of locos to be named after the main characters. See more at www.snailguardians.co.uk
