Thank you ConducTTor , Jörg ( thanks for the links ) , AngrySailor302, Bill in FL for taking some of your valuable time to reply.
Another technique I learned is for the fading lettering ( and in my case the CPR "pacman" logo ) is to drybrush with the same color as tha base paint Polly Scale CP action red.
I wish I have some real TT scale weathered rolling stock to show, but so far I only gave the Belgian Vicinal high sided wagon ready.
In my opinion, weathering in small scales ( Z, N TT ) is difficult, specially the rust because any paint coat on such small models is several mm thick on the prototype

Here is the aforementioned loco, as an example of what NOT to do when trying to weather a loco:

I've seen this before. It's not a bad weathering job. The previous owner just dropped it in a bucket of mustard by accident. Wipe it off on your hot dog and you're ready to roll.

I wish. :lol:

In all seriousness the stuff is fairly thick on the running gear, and deep in the axle slots, to the point where the wheels are not free to move at all.
