If you are intending to model the late crest steam era then you can't go far wrong with BR mark 1 coaches in Maroon livery.
The change from early emblem to late crest started in 1956, so, you could quite easily include some carmine and cream stock too, as not everything was repainted straight away. Several books I have with colour prints include pictures of mixed rakes.
If your period extends to the mid 60's then Western region painted some of their Mk1s in Brown and cream. Ditto with the Southern region where they repainted some into green livery.
You do not say what area of the country you are modelling, a lot of pre-nationisation stock would still be around albeit in BR liveries.
Hope this helps.
