Private-Owner Wagons in Colour – David Ratcliffe (9.5/10)

Another in the series of the ‘For the Modeller and Historian’ books produced by Ian Allan Ltd this volume’s focus is on the UK’s private-owner wagon fleet. Not all of it to be sure, but a fair chunk of it. And what’s more, for those of you interested in scale railway modelling, there are some cracker ideas from the prototype that simply cry to be modelled.

Among them the Jake’s Rail Tank Cleaning Services located near Ellesmere Port station.

Lots of great photos in a range of eras and working environments. This book is a must have for the UK outline modeller interested weathering. So many good photos to weather from. Well worth the price to put into your library.
