Ex Milk Tank

Postby Richard08 » Thu Jun 23, 2022 3:57 pm

The exGWR milk tank finally got it's paint. Intended to show the wagon in it's final days in departmental use, waste oil. Working from a picture on Paul Bartlett's excellent site, this livery has the advantage that bar some elctro-flashes no transfers are required, not even a running number - just something on the sole bar I can't make out. As ever the photo reveals that one of the tank straps needs re-fixing... and I've whacked the vac pipe. Obviously buffers and screw couplings to be fitted when the paint is really dry.

One option is not to fix anything. Many will remember one such which was abandoned on a siding near KX, and which steadily fell to pieces over the years before removal. Sufficiently far gone that parts of the outer cladding rusted away to reveal the insulation...
