Good question Frank! I don't recall seeing mixed rakes. By the looks of things they must have focused on these when rolling out this new image, because all of the other coaching stock and loco's seem to have been done very ad-hoc, and over a prolonged period of time. Hope someone can shed some light on this.

I ve seen pics of a mk3 egv in the older livery with a rake of the newer livery, i ve seen pics of the galway mk2's mixed with regular livery mk 2's . It was far more common with mixtures of liveries in the cravens/park royals, i ve one pic with a gsv in black/orange, park royal with white stripes and 3 cravens in a mix of all liveries.

Forgive my ignorance but how did the galway livery come about and what was it for? Was it supposed to match the first 201s which had that colour scheme?

 

Never understood why the original 201s weird livery didn't match the livery of the mk2 or mk3 coaches.

Providing the carriages were all the same type, mixes of pre- and post- "tippex" would appear in the same train. I remember seeing, on more than one occasion, a Mk 2 in "Galway" livery in a train of identical coaches but in "normal" livery.

That was usually because a coach was taken off for a repair or service & when returned to service was stuck on another set to make up the numbers on another set. The 'Galway' set went around for a long while with a 'tipex' Gen Van as the 'Galway' Van was knackered!!
