The only prep work I did to this one was to mask off the headlight and windows, everything else will get painted. To get an even coat of paint onto the drivers, I place the engine on a short piece of track and power it up. With the wheels spinning, to ensure an even coat of paint without noticeable unpainted areas, the entire engine is painted. I only spray on a light coat of paint, since the engine is already close to the colour I want, it doesn’t take much paint to cover it up. I bought one of these little paint shakers about 12 years ago, and even though people look at my like I’m nuts when I show it to them, it is undoubtedly the most useful tool when painting anything, next to the airbrush. Floquil paint dries quick, actually, it goes on dry, so there isn’t much wait time between steps.
Heavily used steam engines are a series of vertical strips as rain and spilled water drags dust and grime down the sides of the boiler and tender . With the weathering completed, the only thing left to do is to add some decent looking coal to the tender. Adding real coal to a steam engine is one of the most effective ways to improve on realism. I wanted to model a tender that is almost empty, for some reason all model steam engines always have a full load of coal.


I added a few drops of rubbing alcohol onto the coal and followed with some Woodland Scenics scenic cement to glue it in place.
The best way to learn is to study prototype images of weathered equipment, or even photos of other models.
I had it doubleheaded with PKRY #22 which is a completely weathered engine, and coupled to a shiny out of the box engine it was quite a contrast. I hate disassembling steam engines, especially plastic ones, so I try to avoid this when possible.
I never leave anything unpainted, it doesn’t look right even if the model is moulded in colour.
I use a mixture of Weathered Black, Engine Black and Primer to get the shade of grey I like. Don’t use anything other than Diosol with Floquil, other stuff will cause the paint to harden in the jar after a few months. White paint for lettering is far too bright, using a grey creates the illusion of white letters.
Since this engine has a speaker already installed in the tender, there is no room to create the look of an empty tender, so I guess I have another full load. It isn’t too difficult to do, but can take a bit of practice to develop the techniques that work for you. All it takes is a quick shot of dark grey along the bottom of a car to greatly improve its appearance.
Since March of 2007 I have been documenting the construction of the former CNJ Bronx Terminal in HO scale.
I plan to start a weathering on some old freight cars… But airbrush is not an option.


Since I repaint all the engines for the Port Kelsey I am not too concerned about its lineage, I just buy what ever is available. Models should not necessarily be painted the same color as the full size version, and this is especially true with steam engines.
Another thing to avoid on models is a shiny paint job, and moulded plastic always looks shiny.
I add to this mixture some Floquil Glaze, which adds a slight sheen to the paint, which while not completely shiny, does add a slight bit of a gloss to the paint. I didn’t mask these, it looked too difficult to do, so I just avoided putting paint there. For my day job, I design track building tools for Fast Tracks, a small company I own and operate. I know I just contradicted myself there, but an engine should not be dead flat either, the best look is somewhere in the middle. I set the power settings on the laser so it will engrave through the paper, but not the backing sheet. I could never get them all straight either, so I would have to put lots of weathering on the tenders to hide the crooked lettering. A lighter shade of grey is a much better choice, this way the details can be seen at a distance, and they just seem to look right.
It is very important that the wheels are turning, otherwise areas will be missed, and this is very noticeable.
