GWR chocolate brown was used on the lower panels of passenger coaches and for the entire sides of parcels and untility vans.
First used in the Victorian era the GWR changed to crimson lake livery before WW1, but the two-colour chocolate and cream returned after the war and survived until nationalisation. The livery was briefly revived in the late 1950s and is popular with many preserved railways in West of England.
The GWR painted the window bands of their coaches in this pale cream colour, completing the famous 'chocolate & ceam' combination.
Most of the pre-1948 companies used a light grey paint on their goods wagons, the GWR chose a darker shade. All GWR goods wagons were painted in this colour, including both vacuum and non-vacuum fitted wagons. Normally the dark grey was used on all parts of the wagon, including the underframes.
