British Rail Corporate Liveries - Jaffa Cake Livery

Jaffa Cake Livery

Used on the Hastings Line along with the other South Eastern Division, fast and semi fast services of the Southern Region, the Jaffa Cake livery derived its nickname from a perceived resemblance to the internal appearance of a type of biscuit.

The new livery was used mainly with the introduction of the Hastings line electrification in 1986. The anniversary of the Battle of Hastings which took place in 1066 was also used in publicity for the line.

Famous quotes containing the words livery and/or cake:

    Whether, if you yield not to your father’s choice,
    You can endure the livery of a nun,
    For aye to be in shady cloister mewed,
    To live a barren sister all your life,
    Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
    Thrice blessed they that master so their blood
    To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Much of the ill-tempered railing against women that has characterized the popular writing of the last two years is a half-hearted attempt to find a way back to a more balanced relationship between our biological selves and the world we have built. So women are scolded both for being mothers and for not being mothers, for wanting to eat their cake and have it too, and for not wanting to eat their cake and have it too.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)
