STri-ang or Hornby JINTY Whats your favorite livery?

The Jinty loco has been around a long time with Rovex as it all started off with the Tr-ang R52 in BR Black in the fifties that had the body screw in the locos chimney, this was later moved so there is a screw in the side of the body could be fitted with the SYNCROSMOKE unit! Hornby made their new Jinty in the late seventies this replaced the Triang model and no more smoke units! My favorite Jinty is the Railway Children one i like it with the great coaches that came in the set and this has since been combined with a Bachmann Railway Children set that has a Pannier tank with two coaches these now coumpled to the Tri-ang Coaches this looks great i love my Triang Railway Children Jinty so what Jintys do you love??

Hi Colin. I think the Crimson and Gold LMS livery looks good. Not unusual but contrasts well with a greenish or grey background.

The HORNBY LMS CRIMSON JINTY was first released in 1983 there is a Tri-ang version with LMS which is tha same colour and an LMS Black one with Large Numbers just get them as i like them!

I think you have the wrong issue date Colin, the Hornby Jinty still used today was first issued in the LMS livery as 16440 in 1978 as R.052 using the old Jinty catalouge number.

Tri-ang Rocks!

Not really "prototypical", as "Jintys" were all (I think) painted Black, except the S&DR versions....which would be may favourite livery I suppose!

 

The 16440 as modelled by Hornby (and more recently by BM) is based on an example as "preserved" at the Midland Railway (Centre) at Butterly...

Regards Sarah.

Yes indeedy and the loco feature on the front of the 1978 catalouge as well.

Tri-ang Rocks!

Hi all

Steam engines are black only top link passanger engines where painted in colourfull liveries.

The S&D would possibly be the exception that proves the ruleLaughing

There are odd exceptions to the rule, but usually done for business reasons, like the Caly pug in full CR livery which was a station pilot

at Edinburgh Waverly, I think.

Business image is important.

Hi Buz...

 

The Caley it seems did paint a lot of the smaller locos Blue as standard...but possibly not as small as the Pugs....

 

Station Pilots carried all sorts of "nice" liveries....

 

It woukd make a good subject for a collection!

 

The GWR, apart from Wartime, painted almost every loco Green....goods locos included.

 

THe SR, amongst others I believe only painted goods locos Black....Wink

 

Hi Jeff....

 

Ah yes, The Hornby Railways train set that included an LNER Green "Jinty" (Was it a J83 number?) and the LNER "Teak" liveried GWR Celestory coaches, the short 1960 introduced versions!

 

Regards Sarah.
