N GAUGE WEATHERING
More N gauge vehicles have been weathered, ready for use on my little 2mm scale layout, namely a Farish ‘Jinty’ and a selection of freight stock. The layout will not be period-specific – a real ‘anything goes’ affair, as it’s being built not only to show off a variety of buildings and scenic items, but to allow my collection of N gauge locomotives and stock to be run. It is, after all, just a single through line designed for watching the trains roll by.
Before: The Farish Jinty is OK straight from the box, but those bright copper pick-ups and shiny black livery make it stand out from the scenery.
An hour or so with the airbrush and weathering pigments make the little 0-6-0T look much more at home in the scenic surroundings.
It was the desire to run some scale length freight trains that made me decide to build a 2mm scale layout – I’ll never have the space to do the same in OO.
