On the GWR, at one time loco lamps were red. And then white. Does anyone know which colour applies to which period?
Thanks

I recall reading somewhere that the GWR changed from red to white lamps during the period 1936 to 1937. You will appreciate that this did not happen immediately and red lamps could probably be found for some period after 1936 but probably would be less likely after World War II.

I'll try and locate the source of this information and confirm it, but I do not believe that I am far off the mark.

Best regards

And of course the pesky GWR had side fitting lamps so they wouldn't fit on other railway's locos (and thus didn't get nicked by "other" companies!).
