Hello Jack,
 
I don't model the 30s but appreciated your video nonetheless - many thanks. Top-notch as is expected from you.
One is always well advised not to "overdo" weathering - but most all rolling stock at photos from after WWII was way dirtier than the YV trains you are showing, at least from
what I have seen.
On the other hand I usually don't like the looks of extremely weathered engines - I just like them much more though fully painted (that means all the wheel faces too) but
clean (especially those with white-edged running boards and wheel rims) - with only few exceptions, like a GN O-8, C&NW H-1, D&RGW L-131, some Santa Fe, some UP, and
others. This correlates with the obvious great shape of the YV engines shown at your photos. :-)
 
Thanks again and many greetings

If you are modeling the 1930s or so like I am (August 1939) you might appreciate a new YouTube video that just came out on weathering…not how to but more what is appropriate. It is at
