    Matthew,

    Those weathered boxcars look great, did you use an airbrush or chalks?

    Chalks, don't have enough money for an airbrush. Seems to have a lesser learning curve, too. :giggle7yc:

    I like the Baldwin S12 the best, but the GP20s a bit of an oddball, too!

    That's a "Cheater Boxcar". I'm using a 50' boxcar shell with the frame of a LL GP-20 with the motor. There's also a Lenz 521W decoder inside the shell. I use the "Cheater Boxcar" to help steam loco's move up the long grades of the JJJ&E.

    There are three "Cheater Boxcars" in the JJJ&E fleet.


    Stay cool and run steam......:cool: :cool:

    These photos arn't recent, but as I only just joined this esteemed gathering, most wouldan't have seen them.

    This is an overview of my logging RR sawmill yard.
    It's currently little more than a switching layout but it will soon be extended (the mainline is the track with the derelect steamer on it, near the camera)

    My shay #8 and one of my scratchbuilt log cars.
    Number 8 is a junker brass shay that I bought from a Sydney hobby shop over 10 years ago. I adapted the superstructure to fit on a Bachmann 3-truck shay chassis. With DCC, it runs beautifully!!:thumbs_up:

    Great weathering, Matthew. You really have an excellent technique. I like how you follow the seams with the grime and dirt. :thumbs_up:

    I agree that weathering with chalks is easy. You can always change it.

    Great work and photos guys!
    I really like to see all the weathering.
    I also like the boxcar on the gp20 mech.

    This is about all I will get done this weekend.

    So I guess that counts as not much. :)

    Thanks

    Here is an old business car that at one time belonged to Grand Trunk. It started out as an all wood car but was rebuilt with a steel frame and plated sides. We are in the process of restoring it.
