The shade was also used initially for the red band of InterCity executive of 'rasberry ripple' livery and no doubt many will also remember the signature Network South East red lamposts.

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.

Concrete has been used for railway buildings since the 1920s, steadily increasing in its range of applications. Pre-cast traders' stores (eg. Ratio provender store), fencing, platforms, platelayers' huts and bridge girders all feature among the products of BRs' concrete works.
