    I imagine it's just because it's a temporary fix. Things like beading strips, inspection covers, filler cap recesses, etc are often painted a colour as close as possible to the vinyl colour on a modern relivery. However, if it's only planned to be a short term livery, it isn't always practical to pay the same attention to detail, and so they get left, sticking out like a sore thumb!

    (Before it opens a can of worms for a different thread, I know, some of the long-lived reliveries out there didn't either! o_O:rolleyes::lol:)

    156405 is in the Internim EMR livery (not a ex ga unit)

    Looks a lot better than the ex GA units. Maybe 406 will get the same treatment.

    all 156s will most likely get the treatment and hopefully the ex ga units will actually be cleaned or fully repainted like 405

    Most likely because the EMT 156's have that part painted yellow and they got the vinyls made the same.

    What’s with the blue carriage? Is that presumably to demarcate First Class?

    That's the base blue Hull Trains livery; the 1st Class section appears to be in the end coach (as evidenced by the gold parts around the windows).

    At first glance I thought that was an EMT 153 + XC 22x hybrid

    Still, looks better than the 222 in EMR livery at least.

    Also to report: 156405 is now in EMR base white with no purple end vinyls (a la 156406), and 156918 has received the EMR Interim 156 livery (a la 909 & 922).

    Now that really does look like the XC 170 livery except for the lack of the outline X.

    Only if EMR intend to relocate first class! As the first class vehicle on a 180 is an intermediate car next to one of the driving vehicles.

    Ugly. Why not bin the blue and have the whole train white with purple cab ends like the 156?

    Just looks like a mis-matched mess.

    Cost. Painting the whole train white would be considerably more than just the two end units.

    Which is surprising considering these trains are serving EMR far longer than the HSTs

    But the illustration shows one driving coach and one intermediate coach. It does look a mishmash though.

    I've attached a tweet from an official EMR account as a reply to that original tweet. It suggests there won't be blue. I think we'll just have to wait and see what the final livery will be!

    My reading of that tweet is that it's a bit of a tongue in cheek response to someone saying that the blue needed to go so they just cropped that carriage out! They wouldn't have included the other vehicle, which isn't 'as-is' from Hull Trains, otherwise...

    Interesting though, as i think the simple and most cost effective solution forEMR is just to have the temporary livery as it doesn’t require anything too expensive compared to the final livery

    How come there's a 158 still running around with EMT branding? Slipped the net?

    Most likely. It is only branded on one vehicle.

    Are the window bands on the 222s not being changed to black then?

    Have to say the HST in interim livery looks a lot better than what it would have done in full livery

    So it seems just one of the exLNER HSTs is to receive the EMR interim livery. Hope it can handle the celebrity status!

    Understood it was going to be one of the last ex LNER HSTs going in service to be in the interim colours

    Honestly, the EMR interim/outgoing livery looks a lot better than the full one, still silently hoping they ditch the full livery in favour of the outgoing one, I'm skeptical though.
