Here’s a bit of a random one, but this little line of rolling stock caught some evening sun rather nicely I thought. Background and some foreground isn’t all that though!!6C3C5543-FD87-4DE3-830E-9C6BC2FBB859.jpeg.14b66bfcdcdb20f3c10c803c298653c1.jpeg

I’m not so great at realistic weathering like some of the fine examples I’ve found on this topic but I can certainly do steam pretty well with an editor.

A nice grotty transit van but it needs more dents and scrapes, like mine.

 

As a fellow Transit driver I can confirm this statement to be correct. That rust round the wheel arch looks fantastic though!!

Looks great!! And not necessarily always pranged- 8 years old 110k and not a damaged panel!

110k??? it's only just run in!! :jester: Looks fantastic though!! Since getting mine I never want to go back to driving cars

 

Mine has 327k on the clock, and runs as sweet as the day she came out the factory, the panels definitely show her age though!

110k??? it's only just run in!!      It's not so much run in that's the problem- more what it's run over and by how many drivers that make Railway vans less usable at that age :)

Yeah that makes sense, I think mine is ex Post Office, it's certainly the right colour! Whoever had it before me they certainly looked after it though!

Bit of a different angle, are videos permitted? 

Its May 2001, I only own a VHS type video camera, no smart phones or HD quality back then!

Looks great, remove the quality and with the text in the bottom corner could easily be seen as a CCTV shot

Freshly weathered Class 47 and French Canvas Hood Wagons as per deliveries to Burton on Trent around 2005.

A grubby Class 47 speeds though the Derbyshire Countryside with a Speedlink service for Trafford Park.
