I wouldn’t even say that weathering is extreme.  Looks like a lot of cars I’ve seen and it’s very well done!


Do I detect some Greg Martin style shading on the panels?  And I think the trucks look superb!

We'll call this one "Weathering Gone Wild". I usually prefer to understate weathering, but this undec Accurail was a convention door prize, and other than a few detail modifications, served as a test bed for some extreme weathering. In the old days, I can remember most passing trains having at least one of these paint derelicts.


The car models the Soo Line #44500-45098 series (even numbers only). Decals are K4.
