Default Shay in On30

This is a Bachmann Shay that has been lightly weathered using Brandgonet weathering powders.
Found it hard to take a very nice model and make a mess of it but once I started it became fun. In weathering its OK to make a mess of the job. Thats my story and I am sticking to it.

That's the sort of weathering I prefer, Don. Your shay looks well used but not neglected. Not everything was decrepit and broken down.
Well done

That's sooo true Russ!
So many times, I see folks weather the locos to the point, that if they were like that in real life.....owners would hang the employees for not properly keeping the equiptment up.

I'd say your crew is doing a remarkable job of caring for that Shay. Great job. Jim
