Fassifern Station colour Scheme Help

This is a screen shot taken from one of my DVDs, can anyone recall what colour the fixing's ,doors and woodwork were in the late 60's.It appears from this shot the plumbing pipes were painted light blue including the rendered awning stays.The rendered band around the building appears white.Were the metal awnings painted light blue also?In later pictures this whole end was bricked up.Was this due to the accident that wiped out the pedistrian bridge? I also need the colour of the Timber shelter on the down side, seen on the mid right side of the picture.In the early 60s it was painted a Tan colour and their was a large Palm tree on the Newcastle side.When this picture was taken there was a different tree/shrub there.Any help with colours?

Eureka CPH and CTH

Played with a Eureka CPH railmotor today at my club. CPH showing CTH with inside lights on.CPH has a yellow headlight on radiator end and white coloured headlight on the other end.Engine sound is not the same as 620 some of the standing sounds are the same.Sorry video didnt work.From what ive been told the CPH and CTH will need to have different addresses, to operate the headlights or when running CTH first with headlight on both CPH and CTH headlights will be on if the one address is used.A very nice model that runs well and sounds good.
