92010 brought the sleeper ECS into Euston tonight, I would be very
grateful if someone could tell me what its body side colour actually
is, name or number.

If it hasn't changed recently then Wonkypaedia says "Midnight Teal" is
the colour -

but it looks like dark blue to me.

Assuming it's the same colour as the new Mk 5 carriages, this is what it
looks like in daylight:

Dark green might be a better description, though Midnight <something> seems
appropriate for a sleeper train.

Still looks like dark blue to me. ;-)

I've stood next to this loco or one very like it several times recently
and it's definitely a dark greeny-blue or bluey-green - "Midnight Teal"
seems an appropriate name.

Yes, I agree. I imagine that the colour perception depends on the nature of
the lighting: in bright sunlight it might appear more green than blue, in
dim light, more blue than green.

Perhaps in a modern nod to IEG, it should be referred to as
"Improved Engine Blue"? :)

I thought that the flange-less third axle meant the 9Fs couldn't run on the mainline
any more?

If a Loco isn't used for 6 months or so the number can be reused
Ofcom says so.
