YCV TURBOT Weathering (O Gauge)

Here we have three Dapol Turbots in O Gauge that I have weathered for the Morlock Heath Layout.

I have weathered these wagons to a light – medium level. After a lot of research I realised just how bad these wagons had become when in service with BR. As well as being used as ballast carriers they also seemed to be widely used for spoils and any junk they could carry. Sides became deformed and very rusty with paintwork almost non existing. So these wagons I have done would probably be medium to heavy on any other wagon. These were vacuum braked wagons in an air braked world and were expendable before withdrawal.

Please note, I researched the interiors of these wagons as well as the outsides.
