CrossCountry HST Livery

This is my recreation of the CrossCountry livery for the Great Western Express HST. The livery has been recreated with as much detail as possible, including real life TOPS and carriage numbers, various details and a custom made logo (unfortunately does not include text - this would require so many layers to do). The weathering also includes my most detailed weathering job to date, recreating some of the typical weathering patterns you would see on a HST. Unfortunately, due to a technical limitation with how livery designer is set up on the GWE HST, it has been impossible to give both power cars different numbers due to how the 2nd power basically copies the 1st one with no way to change it.


  • Livery had been recreated as accurately as possible, with the real life colours been used for the livery
  • Livery has various details added for realism, such as warning labels and symbols
  • Weathered and un-weathered versions of the livery included

Technical Details:
TOPS Number: 43321
Coach Numbers: 41195, 45002, 42290, 42378, 42377, 42376, 44052
Livery availiable for:
- GWE Class 43
- GWE Hight Speed Train 2+7


Installation Instructions

  1. Download the .tsw3 file
  2. Put the file in your TSW 3 Livery Manager Exports folder
  3. Open TSW 3 Livery Manager, click on the livery in the list and press import
  4. Enjoy!

Additional Comments

Do not re-post my livery, or a modified version of my livery, anywhere else without my permission. I am not responsible if your game breaks due to using this livery. If I have gotten anything wrong, either on the livery itself or in the this post, please let me know so I can correct it. The best way to see my future projects is via the discord server I am in (link below).

Hi, I dont know if you can help and unfortunatly I am not on discord server. I cannot now import liveries. I am hoping that someone who uses Raging lightning's TSW3 Livery Manager can possibly suggest a solution to my problem. Other people must be using it so I am assuming that something is wrong. The old version used to work but since I have installed the new version (following a reinstalltion of TSW3) I cannot get it to work. I can correctly identify the directories (set library/ set game) and import files but when I click on Save it does not work and produces the error message: "[Err] Unable to save liveries. Object reference not set to an instance of an object" . I am ok with file structures but fairly clueless with coding! Can anyone suggest a practical solution to try that might work. I am assuming that I cant just 'paste' the livery files somewhere? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hmmmm, don't recall hearing of this issue before. The only thing I can think of is maybe try redownloading it again, just in case the download was broken. Make sure you delete all of the already existing files if you do though. Other than that, I'm not sure what the fix for that would be.
