Diesel's New Livery by Sergeant-Sunflower Diesel's New Livery by Sergeant-Sunflower
Let me make this clear before I describe the screenshot: This livery for Diesel is PRIVATE. Apparently it won't appear in Sodor: The Modern Years since it was part of some poll about Diesel getting a new livery or sticking to his usual BR Black livery. It was distributed to me by WildNorWester himself as thanks for testing and providing feedback on his various models that are yet to be released once S:TMY continues. I thought the new livery was a great idea since Diesel is now NWR property. The way his livery was painted on looks very much like Derek if you ask me.

Now for the description.
Diesel was offered a new livery for working so hard. He accepted since it felt dull being coloured black all the time. However, after being repainted, he didn't feel so sure about it as he worried others would laugh at him (he's sort of right there). Upon returning to the sheds, Patrick complimented the livery, but Diesel still felt somewhat disgruntled as he thought that worse was to come.

Models and Route are by WildNorWester.

:lol: I can imagine that happening in Tales from the Other Railway;

Derek: Not only are we Banker Buddies, but now we're Livery Buddys too. Hooray!

Diesel: Kill me...

Well I say it goes pretty well for the character. Like BR Class 08 diesel shunters are 1st generation (pre BR Blue 1948-1965) British Diesel Engines

You know that sort of puts me in the mood of Freight Liner livery. I know it isn't Freight Liner livery. It just sets me thinking of Diesel in Freight Liner livery had he remained in Britain. :)

This is the livery I'm talking about if you're interested:…

This is why I really respect WNW as a trainz modeller. He has everyone so involved with his work, and this is an example of it. Personally I feel though if Diesel were to change livery I'd rather him in a blue colour just to not blend in with Bear, Patrick and the other green engines :)

I agree. Even though WNW's current decision is keeping him black, I think Diesel could use a different livery. If it ain't green, blue's the right way to go.
