    Super job you've done there, TrainSteve! I really like the rusty wheels. Looks like you've managed to avoid what I did on almost all my first weathering jobs, which is overweathering. You might want to keep in mind that 15 locomotives all weathered to the exact same degree...will look wrong. Don't be afraid to vary the dirt and grime.

    Thumbs waaaaaaay up. [​IMG]

    Steve,
    That is a good weathering job for WM locos, not too much. :thumb: Remember WM kept their loco washed and they waxed them once a year. They believed in clean equipment as did the Bangor & Aroostook for that matter!!

    Nice job, you're becoming a pro.:thumb:
