In my collection of Lima and Hornby Seacow ballast wagons I so far have 5 Lima YGH and 1 Hornby YGB.

The pictures show them as i weather them and detail them.

The Lima versions need to be made a little more rusty looking.

The Hornby one came from Neil Mason and needs a little attention, its missing a head protector at one end and a sets of steps has broken off.blogentry-11924-0-95427500-1358706765_thumb.jpg

put side by side and you can tell they are by different manufacturers.

I really must find a photo of the inside of these wagons.

The Lima centre bulhead is higer than the Hornby one but i think they should both be cut down in reality.

I've also managed to lose a white plastic handrail on one of the Lima wagons which I will have to try and replace with some wire.

Wondering what thickness wire I’d need to replace the handrails on the Lima wagons?
