A weath­ered Class 450? Re­ally?

You might think that Bach­mann’s choice to of­fer a weath­ered Class 450 an odd one when you don’t see the real thing cov­ered in rust patches and caked in dirt. Well, Bach­mann has paid great at­ten­tion to how the ‘450’ ages. The ‘450’s’ bod­ies are painted, whereas the sides are vinyl-wrapped. There­fore, the sides re­tain their colour but the roofs, which are painted, fade with ex­po­sure to the weather and car­riage wash­ing plants. Bach­mann has repli­cated this and topped it off with a light coat­ing of dirt.
