    So would that mean Pitchford Hall is the first Hall modified or un-modified to wear BR lined black since 1956?

    I understood that the WR initially didn't like lined black and turned out the mixed traffic locos in unlined black because they never lined out mixed traffic engines In GWR days.

    Hence Manors and Prairies in unlined black, which to my mind look really good.

    I'm happy to be proved wrong on the above assertion, as I'm no WR expert.
