You're right Andrew, they do use a carriage washer once a week. But with the Dutch climate a lot look dirty by the end of this week..

It's funny how climate plays such a huge role in the weathering of trains. Here in Australia we have dust, and lots of different colours of it that affect the locomotives and rail cars.

I posted this image on my blog  while back and could not believe that in England that locos could get this dirty. In fact I would have laughed if someone had modelled a loco in this condition - until I saw the photo.
You can read the Whole Post Here for more information. Thanks for sharing.

He might really go to town on some poor unsuspecting piece of rolling stock :bg:

Tempting indeed....

Final shots of the Dutch diesel railcar DE1 in red. Dirty after a week full service but not rusty and rotten.

Been checking out the Ammo oilbrushers lately, working on one side of a Dutch NS 2400 diesel. Enhanced the contrast between te panels, also faded the paint in the same step. I like this medium a lot. Although not new, they are regular oil paints makes the packaging the work very clean and speeds up the workflow..
