I’ve just found this looking for something completely different. I don’t ever recall any references to them working the WHL? Assuming they are the same as the Revolution one?

Struggling to zoom in on the photo, the third wagon is the type Rainbow have done, the forth is a different diagram (it has a fully coned end). 
The forth looks similar to the TT072H that I’ve 3d printed, but I wasn’t aware of any in blue, so I’m guessing another tta diagram.

I can't read the markings at that range.  Is that really caustic soda traffic?  Not a bulk fluid I would naturally associate with the West Highlands.  If I saw a train of tankers there I would have assumed it was another liquid, almost certainly oil.

these appear to be rear three class B fuel oil, pale blue Caib former class S chemical in china clay slurry and the one in front a Tiger TUA almost probably in slurry traffic for Corpach.

I assumed they were clay slurry, I’ve seen photos of Silver Bullets to Corpach but never 4 wheeled tanks.  Unfortunately at present a couple of years late for my mid 80s layout but added benefits to all those other fantastic WHL layouts around for late 80s.

Caustic soda is used to break down wood fibre when making pulp.

Mark - one of the two Inveresk Clay tanks? https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/inveresktta

And yes, possibly a TUA ex Caustic Acid in China clay slurry traffic. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/icicausticsodatua/e87e1793f
