So I was going through some other sites and found a contest for a weathered flatcar with load. I figured what the heck I've wanted to try weathering, have some Bragdon powders so this is what I did today. I took the trucks, wheels and couplers off and hit them with some Dulcoate then started working with the powders. At first I put the powder on then hit with more dulcoate but it seemed to wash it away so I just stuck with powder only, the package says it will stay in place without the dulcoate. I've got a couple of months to finish two cars and the loads not due until 1/13 so I can try other things if I need to but for now just let me have it and tell me what y'all think of my first time trying weathering.
