I never know if these count as a dark red – the first is an EWS liveried locomotive and it’s definitely a ‘dull’ red…

…But I’m pretty sure LMS / British Railways Maroon (sometimes called Crimson Lake) counts as Dark’ when it comes to reds…

…And then there’s our Wingate & Finchley away kit from a couple of years ago…

…I just wish I had some shots of the Chrysanthemums I used to grow with the red and gold petals – maybe something to look forward to as I replant the garden… 🙂

After a wait in South West Sidings to allow another train to pass, 66719 takes the curve through Willesden Junction towards Mitre Bridge Junction with the 6O72 Colnbrook to Grain aggregates empties. The main line to Euston curves away to the left with the BT Tower on the horizon. The trains just visible through the catenary on the left are parked up in Willesden Traction Maintenance Depot.  Another grey day in north-west London with the rain imminent.
