I was weathering some rolling stock recently and my son asked me why I never weathered any of his cars. He has collected some of his own over the last couple of years, he's 8. I explained to him that I never thought he cared or would even want his rolling stock to be as he says "dirty and crummy" I can't say I ever thought I would be weathering a spotlight car, I mean I try to only run somewhat prototypical cars. At any rate we decided he should have his first lesson in making rolling stock look a little more real. Here is the outcome.

He's already better at weathering than I am or ever will be. Never got the knack of it, takes an artistic eye.

My son loves it. I put LGB power pickup wheels, a voltage regulator with a large capacitor and a bright white LED in it. It works much better than the stock setup.
