A version of this method seemed to work (so far) when I did my loco.

Try spraying the matt coat and put the dust powders on top of the matt while it's tacky but not "wet"

Have a look at this. They are CARRS WEATHERING POWDER (actually a type of dye used in the textile industry)
There is a firm in the US that imports some Carr stuff. I saw their advert in NGSLG.

They may import it if asked.

==================================================

These finely ground pigments have a slightly greasy nature so that they may be rubbed into a textured finish to produce a permanent stain. They should be brushed or rubbed onto the model with a fingertip, cotton wool or felt pads, then worked into the corners and cracks. They may be smeared with a pad of blotting paper, or fingers and mixed together to get varying hues. Water streaking may be achieved with a paintbrush and water with detergent. The white powder may be used for lime-streaked effects. On gloss-finished surfaces to which the powders may not readily adhere, a matt varnish may be used to provide a base surface. Wet & oily areas should be picked out with a gloss varnish. No further protection is needed and handling a weathered vehicle seems to improve it rather than spoil the finish.

Rust and Coal Dust - a fresh oxide colour and a darker rust as well as a jet-black and an oily powder.

Shades of Mud - a very dark brown, two lighter browns and a sandy chalk colour.

Spring Greens - four shades of green, two bright ones and the other two of a more natural toning.

Mellow Yellows - has four shades, typical of dry grass and dead leaves.

Grey tones - ideal for toning down paintwork and putting dust onto wagon sides and carriage roofs.

Primary Tints - used for blending into other powders so as to vary the hues and create subtle changes. It contains a strong white, ultramarine blue, and a bright yellow together with a strong red.

Each pack contains four shades as shown above. In the UK its about $7 a pack
