    It is a combination of washes, dry brushing, and air brush. I use Folk Art paints in the following colors:

    Washes
    Charcoal Gray

    Dry Brush
    Charcoal Gray
    Burnt Sienna

    Air Brush
    Charcoal Gray
    Burnt Unmber
    Raw Umber
    Raw Sienna
    Country Twill (Cement Dust)
    Licorice (ash and cinders on the car roofs)

    It is always nice to find another antracite road modeler. I also model the L&NE and Reading.

    fantastic! I can't think of an appropiate superlative.
    hope the leading truck on the second boxcar didn't cause too much trouble
    when I was a child my father taught me some signals,for hot box etc, since nearly all my free time was spent around the siding. I don't remember any of them now.

    Thanks everyone!

    I was wondering when some one would mention that.:oops: I saw it right after I posted the thread and was too tired to do anything about it.

    A buddy of mine used to but small little oddities in his photos just to keep people guessing. I have done once or twice but not in a long while. Hmmm.......:D

    Tom, very nice roll-by. This hillside with the forest in the background is an awesome scene. I admire the subtle weathering of your cars. Great job :thumb:
