Roco have just released a special edition of the Taurus which features the great Austrian composer Mozart.



The Taurus is noted for some extremely complex and original livery schemes. Here are a few others I have spotted.









This form of decoration can also be seen on some American and other nationalities locomotives but does not seem to have taken off in the UK. Have any of the people on the forum spotted any unique and original liveries or loco decoration they wish to share?

No accounting for taste is there. Make the Ginsters DMU's and others seem almost bearable.

Imagine the "discussions" we'd get from the "everything must be exact" brigade if Bachmann or Hornby tried to produce one of these! 50K posts later and we would all be comatose!

Yep, there's some pretty bored individuals out there.


Some people have no sense of perspective.

I remember a loco (probably was a Black 5) covered in wallpaper to demostrate the strength of the paste (I think the brand name was "Solvite" or something) - could that be the one you were thinking about ?
