This is 'Maid of Orleans' in British Transport Commission colours. There is a good photo of 'Pick Me Up' in the gallery. Unfortunately it is in black and white.

Thanks very much cueball44 for your reply,I have seen the photo on the site but alas it's in black and white.
I think the funnel is cream with a black top ,I guess the Hull in black with maybe dark brown topping.May have to use artist licence!
