Anyone know the time period of the livery on the two diesels?


oops, two of the diesels, not the 20

Three diesels.

What is probably an 04 with the wasp stripes and the class 25 in two tone green with small yellow panel, both from 1961 onwards, until a BR blue repaint from 1968 onwards but often long delayed or may never have happened for these 'heading for the scrapper' types.

The class 37 in all over green is I believe a fiction in terms of BR operation. They came into service late 1961, after yellow end panels had become a requirement, so were introduced to traffic with SYP. Unlike big brother, the Deltic of which the first few examples came out in a very well designed two tone green in April 1961, with the yellow panel added quickly when in service.
