So far my rolling stock is all cheap plastic stuff that I've repainted and added body-mounted couplers, etc. Everything is "weathered" during the painting process.

The undersides are basically stock, which means cheesy, molded details, etc. So the paint treatment is pretty simple too -- kind of a dark, blotchy, mud-dust-grime effect over everything.

Whenever I get around to scratch-building my own rolling stock, I will likely build it with more accurate detail on the underside, and will then spend a bit more effort on paint/weathering of the underside.
