The only thing I know of

that can't be weathered too much

is a SP diesel.

Bring on the paint, airbrush, chalks,

water colours, oils, powders, and dirty fingers.


I love the techniques, and damn the reality !

Agree.


A lot of narrow gauge stuff

ends up looking like the last train out of Baghdad.

On the Shorpy.com Site, there is a pic.
search "Homeward Bound 1938"

I don't know if you would call it
over the top weathering, or just flat used up.

If you look at the details in the photo,
like the guys shoes (toe exposed)
socks (pinned to his pants)
the truck bed wired together,
or the parking block behind the tire...
the whole scene is just flat used up and worn out.

It could be a good shot for Woodies layout.
From the look on his face,
all looks bad but that's all he has got.

Makes me glad I'm where I'm at.

Sounds like a picture

the great Walker Evans,

government photographer,

was taking during the 1936-38 era.

Mike

If you have not seen it,
it is well worth a look.

A person could spend entirely too much time
on the Site, cruising through the subjects.

Interesting picture,

while I was there, at Shorpy,

I searched Walker Evans,

and looked at a bunch of his photos.

If you do a search at Shorpy, just for railroad,

you will find a lifetime of detail ideas...


Unweathered !

Why isn't there an example of  'overdone'  and  'just right' ?

???  ???

Confused, Bobby !
