Do any of you guys weather your models? If you do, what products and techniques do you use for trains and buildings?

I have not yet weathered my American and Russian models but I plan to do it. All my German models are weathered, also all buildings both on my German and on my American layout. For weathering I use thinned water colors.

Do you use an air brush or a regular brush? Which colors do you like to use and for which applications?

I use a regular brush. For trucks and underframe I prefer a rusty color. For the car body, the basic weathering is a light use of gray that make the cars look a little dusty. Then, at selected points, e.g. valves and pipes, I use more colors to model specific kinds of dirt.

That looks great man - I love that you repainted the whole livery too (BN).

I did not weather anything by myself, but I have a friend who painted and weathered some cars for me (I mean automobiles). As for American cars - 1949 De Soto, 1956 Ford F pickup:

and also some 1:100 trucks that are suitable for TT, I am sure:

Nonono, Al, I was talking about only the cars and trucks!
The figures are the standart Noch figures!

He works on the figures too (his name is Jakob, nickname J.R.). For example, his work in TT scale (Russian marine):
