    Pretty good. I'm to afraid to weather my models. I don't want to over do it, lol. If you look, the oly weathered cars on the layout that are weathered are my SCMX 23,000 gallon tank car ( more of an accident) ,Southern and COnrail 50' boxcars. I have another 40' Industrial Rail Burlington Northen Boxcar i wethered that looks ok, but i don't use it on my trains. I should use the rest of my $3 junk cars for practice.

    Thanks everybody for your compliments. It is so easy to do. I practiced on the 40' Columbus Line Container and liked the results so I just went from there.

    Here are a couple more I did this morning.

    Here's a couple of the BNSF Coalporter Train. I have only done 2 of the 6 but it already makes the one's that arn't wheathered look bad as you can see in 1 of the pics below:

    The coal load is ground up asphalt from when they re-did my street. It works great and looks like real coal.

    I think this is my best example of weathering, although it is hard to see. THe trucks are rusted up like on most GG1s, the sides are almost clear ( this is because the GG1s would back therough the passenger car cleaner as well) and a rusted, tarnished roof, which looks pretty realistic if you could see the roof, lol. I tried to match as closely as i could to picture of it i saw on RailPictures.net
