Yep... Just there were too many reflections to get the right colours.
That is rather nice, and that's coming from Mr Yellow here.
Now I wish it had the later Electrostar lamp clusters.
My "slight change" to the new livery applied to 221 101 would be to obscure the whole thing with a cloud of fog.
A waste of a post and a poor attempt at humour.
It's not a bad idea. The Voyager's are Marmite and the new Virgin livery is crap. The window band is botched fix and if Virgin win the WCP, hopefully they remove the flowing silk livery.
LNWR or WMR liveries - just drop the yellow ends on the door panels. They look absolutely ridiculous.
At present I respectfully disagree, but that's because they haven't yet applied the frankly crap ribbon branding which, on the Pendos, has ruined a previously sleek design.
It never looked as good on the Voyagers, so I'm willing to wait and give it the benefit of the doubt, though you'd still have to drag me kicking and screaming to get me on-board one of those favelas on wheels for more than 10 minutes.
Or drop the green and have the whole front yellow?
It raised a chuckle here, actually. Your post is more of a waste, I think.
To avoid the hypocrisy demonstrated above, the Northern livery would be classier if the white was replaced with black, as well as being easier to keep clean!
What do you mean that's not a slight change? It's only changing one colour!
I think silver or gunmetal grey would be better.
Silver and grey trains are ten-a-penny, black would be a bit more exclusive... silver or grey with blue ends would be a bit too similar to TPE too.
None of you have seen the new livery on 221 101 have you...?
It's got a 100% black front with a grey body.
But the black will be yellow soon... for a bit
Inverting the ScotRail livery would be cool for Halloween. I like it
A minor change that IMO would be an improvement would be use of a slightly brighter green for the new GWR livery.
It looks attractive in sunlight, but in dull conditions or under artificial light it looks very dull and dark.
(for reasons stated elsewhere, I don't think much of the interior of the 800s, but that is unrelated to the livery)
Any photoshop experts fancy a go at modifying an actual photo of an 800, or an HST, with a brighter green ?
Looks like a Predator sequal filmed in Scotland.
Tried a Vivarail front on an LU D Stock yesterday:
EDIT: Added emergency exit door.
Very nice. I had to go and check to shake the "isn't that what they normally look like?" feeling.
Alas, it'd never pass without the front emergency door.
Might have to try and put in the door tonight.
Did the door, but it doesn't seem to look right with my Paint skills...
Honestly, if it wasn't for the... flat-ness of the colours giving it away, I wouldn't have noticed. Black lines is about all you can really see at a glance anyway
For me there's something incomplete with the front of the Transport for Wales livery on the 175.
3 mins in paint and I think a red border under the lights improves the look.
In keeping with the Welsh flag, I think a thin green (probably slightly darker than the one on the flag) stripe along the bottom edge would look nice. Or a red one.
In any case the new livery is miles better than any of the ATW ones. Blech.
I would paint the whole blinkin lot blue and grey.
I edited an Italian 'New Pendolino' into the Virgin Trains livery. This is more than a slight change I think though... :P
It suits the New Pendolino really, really well.
Oh, I like that.
The 360 frontage would look good on a 185
That's quite effective
That would be great if Virgin West Coast didn't have Pendolinos
