VIA Rail “Canada 150” P42 #916 Finished Gallery

A light coat of weathering, some mud on the pilot and underbody, and exhaust on the roof, and my VIA Rail Canada 150 wrapped P42 is done.

I like finishing projects, and this is the first time I’ve actually posed a finished project on my layout… ok. the pink foam scenery leaves a bit to be desired, but its a work in progress.

I haven’t done a lot of weathering, but will need to as my equipment for the layout shouldn’t look all clean and shiny, it should looked used. The weathering on the VIA Rail locomotive is limited, mostly around the bottom and the roof, but its still a chance to practice. I recently picked up some Com-Art weathering paints recommended by a friend, and this was my first chance to use them. The set linked was a way to get a range of colours to work with as I experiment and learn about weathering to build my skills.

Not a bad use of a snowy day off to end my weeks vacation, back to the work grind tomorrow, but for now, some more beauty shots of my finished locomotive. Off to the display case with her now!

    • Thanks, I am quite pleased with how it turned out. The biggest problem is that in the display case it’s in now you can’t see the roof exhaust weathering job! I’m going to have to find a better spot to display it!
