Blues from Era 6 1967 – 1971 British Railways Blue Pre-TOPS, would have continued running for some time, so era 7 running side by side with Era 8 would not have been unusual. Photographic evidence certainly proves this into at least 1988. Meantime Railfreight. Railfreight grey[edit] (added. Class 58, 58001 drop though Doncaster Works 9th December 1982)
The Railfreight sector was immediately identifiable through the introduction of a new 'Railfreight Grey' livery, originally created for the new Class 58 locomotives which began to appear in 1982,[1] and then soon applied to most of the locomotives and rolling stock assigned to the division. This new colour scheme was very distinctive on the British network as it represented the first clear break from the universal application of variations of Rail Blue for 15 years.
The new livery was further distinguished, in locomotive classes such as the Class 58 and Class 20 where the bodywork was mounted on a solebar, by painting the solebar red to give a distinctive red stripe running the length of the lower bodyside, a livery known as 'Railfreight Red Stripe'. Other classes of locomotives with an integrated monocoque construction and so no solebar, such as the Class 26, Class 37, Class 47 and Class 56, also had red stripes applied to the lower body side.
Two-tone grey[edit]
Some of the monocoque locomotives briefly acquired a red stripe in 1987; however following the creation of Trainload Freight and Railfreight Distribution in 1987, they were soon repainted in the new sub-sector two-tone grey livery with appropriate decals. Four remaining Railfreight locomotives and rolling stock, not assigned to the sub-sectors, were painted in two-tone grey livery with dedicated Railfreight General decals. !982-1987 Sectorisation. 1987-!994 Sub Sectorisation.
