When I first painted my Garratt Red I wasn't sure there was a prototype to match, I just liked the colour. But it would seem as of recently, the Welsh Highland Railway have a Red loco in their fleet?
Is this life imitating art ??
First up in this video collection is mine, then the WHR video
Now I am not daft enough to thing they saw my video and thought "that's a nice colour" but its nice to know that there truly is a prototype for everything. Sometimes you just have to wait for it to turn up.
