    Hey guys, since these are not in a train like my others are in my other thread "Trucklovers Weathered Freight Trains" I am posting them here for now until I can get them in a train on my layout.

    I will do a seperate post for each train car:thumb: :D :D

    I've got some gondolas at home that need to be weathered, and trust me, I will be referring to this thread when I get started.

    Do you use prototype photos to weather from, or do you just "do it"?
