Help needed for weathering

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Anybody got a decent color picture of a 12000 refrigerator wagon in service or in fact any of the white reefers?

 

I've got a rake of Tenshodo Z ones that are far too white and clean and need weathering and toning down a bit and I'd prefer not to have to put my shades on when I'm running them!

Also did JNR ever run trains that were 'Fish' only as a block train

There were dedicated Express block trains of fish reefers starting in the sixties (previously they were incorporated in manifest freights, presumably), in order to compete with truck transport. This is the limited express fish reefer train “Tobiuo” (flying fish)from Hatabu in Yamaguchi Pref. to Tokyo:
