TML PXA Procor / CAIB wagons


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm modelling a rake of these and curious about the colour they were painted in. The TML yellow ones seem to be an 'off (slightly darker?) warning panel yellow' from looking at Paul Bartlett's photos.. is that the case? What precise paints and colours have others used? Also us there any advice on the blue TML ones.. I'm really not sure about those.

Thanks

Thanks @black and decker boy .. Maybe Humbrol 154? Any ideas on the inside colour?

Rusty steel, with traces of their last load remaining. There would have been some overspray of body colour for the top foot or so, but the rest was unpainted. The blue-painted ones seemed to be a darker shade of blue than that used by Eurotunnel.

The ex TML boxes still carry this yellow livery underneath the build up of brown. Some of them it's quite noticeable, showing on the edges of ribs and ends of the wagons. Most are in Mendip Rail traffic.

There's a small number still retain the end platforms, but I think it's single figures. I've not got my research to hand.

The very similar looking wagons built for Yeoman have never carried the end platforms.

I've just finished a couple of Paul Rolley's 7mm ones. I think one is Plastikote Yellow and I can't remember what I used on the other one. They're probably not 100% accurate but with a liberal covering of dirt they should look the part.

@D6775 they look great! What is the precise paint you have used there?

 

I have been looking at Tamiya Camel Yellow or Humbrol 154.. seem like fairly close matches to the real thing in photos. And as D6775 said above, with some weathering may also look right. Any views?
