LB&SCR A1/A1X Terriers: Livery - Marsh Umber

We are now in a position to start to reveal the liveries that will be available for our A1 and A1X Terriers. There are17 liveries in total, 19 if you include a couple of dirty variants as well!

You've seen plenty of the Stroudley Improved Engine Green so we are going to move straight on, as did the real engines historically, to the Marsh Umber livery.

At the end of 1904 D.E. Marsh became the Locomotive, Carriage and Wagon Superintendent at Brighton Works. He abolished the previous Stroudley livery and bought in a new colour scheme generally referred to as Marsh Umber. However he did keep the same design of a base colour with panels in a different colour.

Apparently Marsh was rather unpopular at Brighton and he resigned on the grounds of ill health in July 1911 however his livery was kept until the LB&SCR was grouped with the Southern Railway in 1923.

Note: As with all of our liveries that carry names these are completely dynamic and you can type any name you wish to have from 3 to 11 characters and they will scale to fit the tank sides correctly. The names shown are just those we selected for these screenshots.

In reality Marsh actually removed the Terriers names from their sides (possibly part of the reason he wasn't very popular!) and they carried the letters LB&SCR between 1905 and 1911, and LBSC from 1911 until grouped with the Southern Railway in 1923.

And we have created these as options as well.

More liveries to come soon.... lots more!


  1. It's hard to think what the other liveries could be, as I have got 13 noted down.
