MORE AB STOCK

1980s Railfreight fleet expands.


A few more air-braked wagons have entered service over the weekend, with a distinct early-1980s feel about them. They're all Bachmann models, originally obtained in EWS colours at a bargain price compared to the BR livery versions. After only minimal preparation, they were duly pre-shaded and weathered in my own special way, using lots of different shades and tones, before the 'muck' was layered on top. I'm particularly chuffed with the OBA open wagon, with the bare timber interior providing a welcome contrast to the outside. 

The techniques employed on both wagons will be showcased in a forthcoming book that I'm currently working on. More details of which will follow in due course...
