Thanks Guys! The trees are Super Trees from Scenic Express, and constructed using tutorials that I found online. Mostly, have some leaf color variety, paint armatures gray-ish, trim the armatures to shape them, and not too-much leaf material. The weathering is largely based on the work on Charlie Duckworth. He has a couple of articles in MRH (I think) related to the Bagnell Branch and weathering when he was doing transition era stuff. It is mostly (1) airbrush with washes to fade and grime, (2) dullcoat, (3) pan pastel highlights, (4) dullcoat (repeat 3, 4) until happy (that DRG&W boxcar is still too shiny), paint and weather wheels and trucks with a base coat that is rail brown in color as a base. The pan pastels really help highlight the details in the moldings (rivets, straps, etc.). Maybe more details later..... -Bob T.
