Weathering Rolling Stock and Painting the Earthworks
I managed to get some of the freight cars I bought at the train show weathered yesterday. As usual I went with chalks. I think the cars tuned out rather nicely.
While I was at it, I went ahead and painted the recently-constructed mountains. Just painting all those white masses brown really makes a huge difference. I can't wait to get on with turf and trees.
After this all that remains is some more hillsides near Kittanning Point, pole lines and wire (yuck), roads and the lake in the middle of the curve. With that, all scenery between Altoona and the east portals of the tunnels will be done. From there, I hope to finish up Altoona proper and then move into Gallitzin.
