Black LNER wartime coaches - pictures and/or advice please.

Hi folks.

I am new to this so please bear with me. I am an eBayer and have recently bought a Sir Ralph Wedgewood A4 loco in black wartime colour (I think the colour was used between 1944-1947).

Subsequently, I was an unsuccessful bidder on three Hornby LNER wartime Thompson coaches. See the following link (hopefully the photos are still present) of the eBay listing: ... K:MEDWX:IT

I was wondering whether anyone knew if I could get some detailed colour pictures of any black LNER/NER wartime coaches. I am looking at refurbishing some of my LNER teak coaches, in particular, I may need guidance on:
1. Colour of main body and roof of coach.
2. Decals - colours and locations of LNER/NE and numbers.
3. Interior styling... etc

Look forward to hearing from you.
