Small weathering details that make a difference

Hi all,

Having more than one number of the same of  loco can be a weathering challenge so I try to add a small but noticeable difference!

In the case of this 47 class loco it's oily foot prints on the walkway. Very easy to do with some thinned 50/50 gloss black! Now I can run two 47's in the same consist and they both have there unique differences and features like the footprints on this loco and faded numbers on the other candy colour 47 class I have on my blog.

If you going to weather one or more of the same loco always keep the others handy so you can make the weathering just a little different on each
one and always have a few photos handy! You don't need try and match whats in the photo but use it as inspiration....
