Three OO Bachmann Ale wagons

This is a re-weathering job as they came factory weathered. I have to say that Bachmann did a very good job – but they looked very ‘flat’ and a bit ‘light’. I did my usual wash and wipe with Matt Black and then re-sprayed the underframe using four colours rather than the original one colour spray.

Getting the Matt Black in the boarding gaps really brings their appearance to life.

OO J15 re-worked

This is a Hornby J15 that I have re-worked as an earlier variety. It has now got the ‘British Railways’ logo and has been renumbered. The Loco has then received a medium weathering consisting of a dusting of grime by airbrush and then some dry brushing to highlight various details.

HMRS Transfers, Railmatch and Humbrol paints used.

Ivatt 4MT in OO Gauge

This is a Loco that used to run on a layout that I sold several years ago. Since then it has just been stored awaiting a new project that so far has not materialised. It has now been serviced, re-numbered and BR Logo changed to an early crest. It should be going to a new home soon. It is lightly weathered, has a lamp added, Screw couplings and pipes and has real coal.
