NIR Spoil / Ballast Wagons

For the modeller, they were delivered in. Sort of light greyish duck-egg blue, with "U T" in black along the side, and the number. They became so grubby that this colour became 100% obscured by dirt, thus the correct "livery" when working is just a complete covering of muck and brake-dust weathering!


I don't believe any were ever repainted.

Subject to Special Delivery working next Wednesday morning, I'll have the pre-production version of my Spoil wagon on view at Bangor on 12/13 April.


Unlike the 64 parts in Kirley's version, mentioned by Glenderg above, the kit will have about 20 parts - four sides, a chassis, buffers couplings etc - not quite Airfix kit ease, but close!




PS Can't resist this - with this post, I become a Senior Member! Am I the senior member at nearly 68 years? No comments from the Police Commissioner, please! Know who I mean, David?
