As is well known, there was a blue stripe Scotrail Livery, which was applied to all the push pull 47s, 47701-17, and also to just one class 47/4, 47461 at Inverness. Other 47/4s at Inverness, which had Scotrail branding, carried the red stripe version. It was simply the intercity executive livery, but with the InterCity legend replaced with Scotrail. It leads me to ask why was there a red stripe Scotrail livery? Why didn't they have all the Scotrail 47/4s in blue stripe livery? And, why did 47461 end up as the only 47/4 to carry the blue stripe version?
