43165 Llandevenny 17 July 2002

First Great Western's first attempt at a blue livery included a large area of white, which as it proved difficult to keep clean, was soon replaced by a more overall blue colour scheme. 43165 passes Llandevenny on 17 July 2002 with the 1L48 09:30 Swansea to Paddington service. This was early days for the new livery, and most of the fleet was still in the green 'fag packer' colour scheme, including the rest of the train pictured here.
