Been thinking about this for a short while, and wonder if anyone can say for sure which was the very first loco painted or re-painted into the new BR colours in 1948.

Likewise, can anyone say which was the very first coach painted or re-painted.

Thanks in advance.

It can be argued that Black 5 no 45292 was the first to be painted with the LNWR style lining on all over black, adopted as BR's mixed traffic livery. This loco was displayed for BTC board review of possible loco livery styles for BR, (with other Black 5's in livery styles which were not adopted) on 30th January 1948.
