Now then here's the question - what colour shall i paint the loco?!!?
On a little industrial diesel, whats best?!
How long is a piece of string ?
Suggested possible colours:-
Green --- safe industrial colour with good contrast if you add 'wasp stripes' to the ends.
Red --- a slightly different colour but it can blend into brickwork if not careful.
Yellow ---- nice and bright and shows any weathering, you add, well
Blue ---- Slightly unusual but not impossible. Also good with 'wasp stripes'.
White --- has actually been seen but not really sensible for the industrial scene !
Pink ---- Yes I have seen a photo of a full sized pink loco. Not your usual choice but should start a few interesting conversations !

So it is really up to you, just pick your favorite colour and use that.
Personally one of my favorite loco colours is "Stroudley improved engine green', for which I use yellow ochre.
But that is just my
