I hate graffiti in general but it's done well on that car.

Nice weathering Taxari, not overdone.
I like the way the Canadian National Raylway boxcar looks.
Could you explain some of your technique, are you using an airbrush ? some artist pastels ?

Jacques: TT-scale????

Weathering: I use different techniques, airbrush, normal brushes and weathering powder from www.artitec.nl
My ideas i collect from original photos and other artists:

But my most important experience is: less is more!!!! Try it and have fun.

Judging from the truck mounted coupler on the car, I'd guess the pieces in the photo are N scale, the state of Maine car looks like it's from Micro Trains and the loco is probably Atlas.

Just a guess,

Dear TT modelers friends,
It was not my intention to fool the honorable members of this forum.
The picture I posted are from an N scale engine and boxcar
In my opinion, weathering is ( almost ) scale independent ( I'll explain that further )
I airbrushed the boxcar and engine with a higghly dilutaded paint ( 1 part paint and 16 part rubbing alcoohol ) mixture
But first:
GP9 engine grills: a pollyscale engine black wash
dynamic brake grill: engine black drybrushing
trucks :airbrushing 1/16 grimmy black
roof : 1/16 engine black
overall: L&N grey

I agree, weathering is largely independent of scale, though pretty much every technique available for Z, N, HO, and OO is suitable for TT.

Weathering is scale independent as far as general technique is concerned, with the exceptions that smaller scale models are actually a bit more difficult to do, because it's easier to go too far with weathering on the smaller models. Also, because a smaller model represents an item being viewed from farther away, any weathering should be done with a lighter hand, as well.

After having worked for many years in a model train store, I just find it challenging to try to determine what the scale is of the models being pictured. I wouldn't want that to infer that someone is trying fool anyone with a photo, good modeling has no boundaries of scale as far as I am concerned.

If I can find them, I have some photos of what bad weathering on TT scale equipment looks like. The last (so far) HP 0-6-0 that I bought, looks like someone rolled the thing in a mix of mud and dirt, to the point the wheels barely moved.
