British Railways Maroon. Traditionally this classic colour was used on diesel locomotives and coaches roughly from 1955 – 1966. The Midland, Eastern and Scottish regions adopted the maroon livery which strongly resembled that of the former London Midland and Scottish Railway, representing a return to the regional colour schemes. This colour was also used on the British Rail vehicles, including the Land Rover.

- Spray application. All of our Coach Enamels will need to be diluted by around 5-10% using Paintman Coach Enamel Thinners, thus ensuring the highest quality finish and maintaining correct drying times.
- Surface Preparation. Prior to painting ensure all surfaces are clean and dry to remove any contaminants. We recommend using our Surface cleaner 2800 for painted surfaces or our Surface Cleaner 2802 for bare metal. Just prior to painting, wipe the surface with a Tack Rag to remove dust and other loose contaminants.
