Well I never thought that my starter for this subject would get so much feedback and interest.On one point I feel that the Royal 47 should stay in the Royal Maroon livery as I think that is why it was donated. If the NRM don't want it then they should consider selling it. I think that if they used the loco for public trains and use it with Maroon coaching stock they would sell all the tickets everytime. It would be especially interesting on short trips such as the York to Scarborough. If the public were made to realise it was used for Royal Train services I think it would be a sell out.
