The Southern region clung to the green livery during the early BR era and once regional liveries were officially authorised in the mid-1950s, they quickly repainted many standard liveried vehicles. This is one regional livery which survived until the return to corporate management and plain blue in the late 1960s.

The standard colour for BR goods wagons from 1948 was this light grey. This livery was used on the vast majority of the wagon fleet, including the thousands of steel coal wagons built in the 1950s which were equiped only with hand operated brakes.
BR painted goods wagons equiped with the vacuum continuous train brake in a bauxite brown colour, making them readily identifiable from the ordinary grey wagons.
This paint is the early red/brown bauxite shade, used from 1948 until the mid 1960s, but many older wagons continued in use in the colour until withdrawn.
A dirty colour ideal for weathering underframes, wheels, axleboxes and bogies.
Gloss finish varnish for Railmatch acrylic paints.
A gloss finish is recommended as the best surface for the application of decals. A final satin or matt varnish can be applied over the finished model to seal the decals.

Doncaster works shade of LNER Apple Green.
The LNER standard Apple Green for locomotives was subject to some variations as paint was normally mixed from pigments on the day, not supplied pre-mixed from a factory as it is today. Depending on which works was responsible for repainting Doncaster and Darlington produced noticable differences in their interpretation of Apple Green.
