I was reading an article last night about weathering freight cars ……. okay, who am I kidding, I was looking at the pictures ….. and while the author did some excellent work, it made me wonder yet again, how much is too much? I have a few factory weathered cars, some custom weathered cars, and a couple I have done my self. Most are fairly light weathering and I like that. It's just seems like more often than not, I great looking weathering jobs that are way beyond anything I see rolling the rails. Is it just me? Or does it seem like a lot of weathering thoughts are more is better? Okay, I had to ask this but I feel more like I just threw an aerosol can on a camp fire and walked away. For now, I will crawl back under my rock and read the replies from there.
