Something you would see at many of the stations back in the day
The crew for A2986 swap over
With all the fuss over the colours of locos; I assume many people's heads would explode over the mechanical lubricator and the butterfly doors on 986? Did the engine ever run as a coal burner with boxpoks? Or do people only know what colours stuff used to run in and that's why it causes such a huff n' puff? The great thing about paint is you can change it whenever you like, or more to the point the owner/custodian of the loco can.There is no fuss over loco colours. A few people, myself included, have said they either like 190's colour or they don't - a simple expression of preference. I haven't seen anyone saying that Steamrail should or should not use a particular colour. My own comment was that Steamrail can do what it likes. Why you assume that "people's heads would explode" over other features escapes me. This "heritage" bit is being introduced for no good reason - it has not been part of the debate.
