Evening all,
Does anyone know if the yellow paint applied to British Rail road vehicles in the seventies was the same as applied to front warning panels on locomotives and multiple units?

Welcome aboard.

Cannot say I was closely watching the railway's doings at the time, embedded in a busy career and the general truck of life. My impression was 'the same yellow on road vehicles as loco fronts' but this comes with a note of caution: I am a divergent trichromat and as such my colour perception is slightly shifted from the modal perception, right in the zone relevant to this question!. Simple discriminator, I see the Sodium D lines as bright orange, whereas the modal perception is yellow.
