Bachmann model gains new identity.
I've been sorting through my collection of blue and grey Mark 1s recently, noting how they're a real mixed bag in terms of regional allocations. I tend to buy whatever is going cheap or secondhand, as long as it's the right type of vehicle, knowing that I can easily swap running numbers. Indeed, this former Eastern Region corridor second has now gained Scot Rail branding and number, without any need for painting or refinishing.
I've used Replica Railways rub-on transfers in this instance, but all my other coaches are destined for 'M' prefixes and authentic numbers courtesy of a new pack from Railtec Transfers. I'll be demonstrating how I remove the original printed legends and add the replacements in issue 208 of Model Rail magazine - out next month.
