petrolium trains
« on: August 13, 2011, 11:48:16 PM »
hi,

should all the tankers in a rake be for the same petrolium company?

also, i notice that a lot of the tankers in most rakes are actually unbranded or just too dirty to see the brand logos, or the running numbers or anything else.... is there a way of removing the brand logos easily from farish TEAs and then weathering them up as i like?

the era i'm going for is mid to late 80s / early 90s, i was thinking of buying some pre weathered Fina tankers, and then just buying a few black or darker grey tankers, removing the company brands and heavily weathering them...

tim, if you do weather them, make sure that the warning labels are kept nice and clean, as per rid regulations
if it helps have a look at this list of u.n. numbers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_UN_numbers_1201_to_1300 and this one http://the-ncec.com/hazchem/

for a laugh look at this, this is what is called a B.L.E.V.E.

cheers for replies and useful links

i got a fina TEA on ebay, it's unweathered, so i'll practice weather that one, then maybe get a few of the black bp ones and try to de brand them and then weather them a bit more...

best wishes

don't know what you use to remove branding or paint, but I've found that T-cut on a cotton bud works well without damaging the paint underneath.

use it mainly to remove numbers etc.

Hi Tim,   

I think   peco   do  tanker kits  saving you the trouble of removing the  markings &  allowing you to paint them as you wish  :)

hi nick,

cheers for the tip, i'll try out t-cut on cotton bud, i think the BP black TEAs would be easy enough to do, only have to remove the BP green / yellow logo...

do peco do TEA wagon kits?


cheers

That's painted in a 1960s livery, before Hazchen markings were applied.
Peco do 45t TTA kits, but not 100t TEAs.
