Axholme Joint Railway Liveries

19th Century liveries are often open to conjecture. It is also notoriously difficult to reproduce accurate colours on a computer screen, so this has not been attempted. Accurate matches should be taken from preserved vehicles, museums, or historical societies.


The Axholme Joint Railway did not own any locomotives, but it did own a Sentinel railcar. This was painted in the same green & cream livery that the LNER used on its other Sentinel railcars. This used green on the panels below the window line, and cream above. The railcar was labelled 'Axholme Joint Railway'.


The AJR's wagon livery is unknown, but probably followed standard British practice of using grey for unfitted wagons.
