Paul Bartlett's website is a good place to start: https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/lnerwagon but bear in mind that the majority of Grouping period photographs were monochrome. Oxford Blue in service varied from dark to light and has been discussed elsewhere, possibly on this forum, but finding that element of a thread could be time-consuming - Dave's C & W thread might be a good place to start: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7183

Peter Tatlow's LNER Wagons Volume 4B is a good source of photographs and other related information, such as build dates and running numbers.
