    I am making a model of the saloon above. This picture shows it in EW&S livery but i believe it went into the later EWS wording do you know if the letters are in the same location? I have seen a model of some one elses and they have it central on the bodyside but i dont think that is right. If you can help that would be great.

    Cheers Tony.

    There's a pic here at the GCR just before it got repainted presumably. Lettering isn't that clear but it looks like it only ever carried EW&S branding.

    Or if it does say EWS its in the same position - view at full size.

    Does anybody know what the 'box' under the running number on the side reads?

    I think it is a depot logo InterCity introduced a number during the early 90s that included a ram for Derby Etches Park, a windmill for Crown Point and the twin towers for Wembley. Which one is on this vehicle though I have no idea.

    As an aside does anyone know any other I/C logos that were used by depots?

    Hi Jon, thanks for the speedy reply, lets hope that somebody knows which one it is.

    Looks like a 'shed sticker' older ones on locos and units printed vinyl background in BR Blue with white print, later with Intercity livery, black text on clear background.

    DY - Derby Etches Park had a Rams head logo sandwiched between 'D' and 'Y'

    Although that's not to say it could be a T S for Tyseley that had 'TS' together then a bear logo on the right of the text.

    I also recall a few spoof ones printed, indeed test car IRIS had a whole internal partition covered in them from depots it had visisted

    I've got exampled of the intercity DY and TS if you need a close up,

    Hi Robin, a close of both would be very handy, could you post them here (Ben?) as they are relevant, or if not, my email address is

    many thanks.

    Hi Ben. You asked Robin before I could. I would like to see both the depot logos too so if they could go on the website it would be great. I am trying to get a comprehensive list together of depot symbols hopefully for eventual publication one day and any info should help.

    Depot stickers not really for this website but I have asked Simeon if he has a larger version of the photo that may answer your question.

    Simeon has sent me the scans and it seems to be the DY one with ram in between.
