First Attempt at Weathering

First Attempt at Weathering

Well, there it is. My entire freight car collection. Yep, that's it. This was my first attempt at weathering a model. It's a Bowser H-43 painted for NYC (CR). There's actually a pile of scrap metal inside, so it appears as though this guy's coal-hauling days are long gone...
Thanks for the comments guys! Unfortunately this car took a tumble off the top of a four foot tall cabinet about a week's now a little more 'weathered' than I intended it to be. I think I'll just secure the dangling parts and pass it off as a derail victim...
