Urban Camouflage


During the course of my work I regularly get railside and today whilst in Kingmoor Yard I noticed this strikingly graffitied wagon in a consist of spoil wagons and vans.
Now graffiti is an emotive subject but whilst it can be a real nuisance it can’t be denied that some of it is fabulously done and it’s an inescapable element of the modern railway.
This example is a particularly interesting and eye-catching one in my opinion.
It’s almost like a disruptive camouflage scheme and would make a really distinctive and eye-catching model.
Would take a skilled hand with an airbrush to do it in 4mm or 2mm though…!

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
