Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

Railroad Models

First off I'll go with some of the rolling stock. Ultimately I will probably only have between 20 - 25 freight cars for this layout, mostly boxcar and refrigerator cars. Obviously most of these will be ATSF but there will be a few foreign cars as well. My camera was dead so I had to take these with my phone. As you can see I still need a lot of work with my weathering techniques.

Then we have the CF7 workhorses. There are two although I will never need more than one at any given time. Right now these are fresh from the boxes, no weathering.

    You should not feel bad about your weathering. They look just fine. Keep up the good work and keep up the weathering - it looks great.

    1. Thank you Andrew. I do need to get back to this I haven't lifted a brush on a railroad model in some time now.
