TOTAL TTA ‘Class A’ & ‘Class B’


I run this as a TOTAL company train with six ‘Class A’ tanks and three ‘Class B’ tanks. Both types of tanks have some modelling differences.

The ‘Class A’ tanks are standard Hornby, repainted and detailed. The main transfers are Fox and they have  light airbrush weathering. Now for something a bit different – all the spillage from the tank fillers are ‘transfers’.  I purchased these from EBAY about ten years after originally finishing the tanks, they came from an American Company, and if I remember rightly, they only took four days to get here. I also purchased some rust streaks for use  on departmental wagons. Were they successful?  I really don’t know – sometimes I think they are OK, but on reflection I’m not so sure. What do you think?

The ‘Class B’ tanks were also Hornby TTA based, but this time the ends were replaced with Genesis Kits conical whitemetal ones. The straighter you can cut the ends, the less filler is required. Overall a great little project for something a bit difference.
