yes.
I believe this was in the BR blue livery around 1949 to 1951
As far as I know from the Green RCTS part 2A Locomotives of the LNER there were only TWO A3s that did'nt wear blue, these being 60070 & 60076
Hope this helps

I still think Hornby should produce a blue Flying Scotsman for kids like me.
