When National Express introduced their corporate colour scheme with 'one' and c2c in 2008, how much of the infrastructure was repainted? What I really wanna know about are whether the "one" rainbow signs at the locations below and other places are still in place:

And whether all the lamp posts at c2c stations are still pink like they were here:

Thanks :D

Most NXEA signs were redone, and now sport plain white backgrounds (or rather, this is true of the former FGE stations at least; I don't know about the others). c2c however still have the same colours that look almost identical to First's corporate colours.

Thanks for the info :)

Do 317/8s carry the new Stansted Express logos, or is it only the 379s that do?

First Great Eastern blue and green stripes remain on some street signage. The red double arrows signs outside Gidea Park, Harold Wood and Ingatestone being examples.

Only 379s carry Stansted Express branding.

Some stations on the West Anglia still have 'one' rainbow stripes on the double arrow entrance signs, including Roydon, Enfield Town and Audley End. Last time I was at Hertford East, a few of the platform signs still had NXEA 'circuit board' stripes on rather than being plain white.

Thanks very much :D
I like these signs, and I'm very glad they are still here and AFAIK GA have no plans to replace them, only the platform signs. Harling Road still had Regional Railways signs lol :P

For some reason, the typeface on the 'one' signs scream 'BMW dashboard' to me, and I've also noticed some use of the Interstate (Sainsbury's corporate/US road sign style) typeface. I've noticed that National Express (before 2007) had been rather inconsistent with their typeface choices. I wonder if Greater Anglia (even with their short franchise) are introducing a new signage style?

Its interesting the 379s carry Stansted Express branding when they work other services, while Southern's Gatwick Express 442s don't carry Gatwick Express branding (only 'Express' branding) since they also work other services.

They aren't, the only changes to signs they are instigating is removal of all NX branding :)

Any pics of a pair of 321s or even a trio with part white and blue doors and part white with red doors?

Quite a few units still have no branding
