    I promise I will NOT weather the Thomas trains. I have already promised my son this.

    BTW- My son LOVES that emoticon that keeps hitting itself on the head with the mallet

    Divide the trains between your trains and his trains.
    Yours get dirty and his stay clean.
    This is a hobby and should not have any rules how an engine, cars or even layout should look like; at least that is my understanding when I signed up for this hobby.

    nice paintjob on the train:thumb: ! What kind of loco is it anyway? Stock or scratch? I ask because I don't remember what kind of loco has that kind of cab

    EDIT: wait, it's an ex-Amtrak, isn't it?:D

    CNWman,
    I believe Roland's engine is a EMD F59. UTA in Salt Lake City took delivery of this one in January 07.

    We will only weather what "needs" it - meaning I just want us to have the chance to learn everything... and I wanted to weather stuff since I enjoy distressing stuff so much (scrapbooking and woodcrafting)... :)

    He'll like it once he figures out he can paint in order to weather things! LOL

    I love that big green one up there BTW. thats very nice!

    My son expressed the same. He does not like dirty trains.

    We now have his trains which will not be weathered and my trains which will be weathered.

    My wife was the same as my son. "You spend $XX.XX on a train and then make them dirty!" After seeing some photos she had to admit that the weathering added to the overall appearence of the scene.

    Heres an idea, buy some coloured chalk and then crush it until its a fine powder, then brush it rondomely on your rollingstock- great thing about using chalks is that you can wash it off easily if your not happy with a result. You can use basically any colour but my favourites are brown, black, white, yellow and green.
