    Preparing for more weathering:




    I'll try to go light on those cars and locos... the blueish tint in the dome windows is Micro Mask, all the other windows of the train (and the C30-7s) I have taken out, removed the trucks, removed the wheelsets, ready to dirty up the carbodies and truck sideframes. Also removed the Kato couplers from the trucks, going to body mount MTL couplers. Now keeping my fingers crossed that I won't mix up the trucks or loose any small pieces like the copper strips to conduct power from the axle tips or mess up any other way...
