Patterns of Weathering on Freight Cars (prototype photos)
Dave Nelson starts his two-part clinic with photos showing the wide variety of what “weathering” does to freight cars, with the goal of identifying certain general patterns that can be modeled.
Weathering Model Freight Car without Airbrushing
Dave Nelson continues his clinic with demonstrations of weathering techniques, with sample weathered freight car models in HO and N scales that will be passed around the room for close inspection.
Train Fun in Western Pennsylvania
Steve Miazga shows us a visit to Horseshoe Curve and a tour of the Carnegie Science Center Model Railroad.
Layout tour will be the HO scale C&NW Lakeshore Division which will be on tour for the first time. It features two large yards and an active interchange with the GB&W. It is a layout you don’t want to miss.
Hope to see you there.
Look for the NMRA WISE meet signs leading you to the correct rooms.
