We use many colours to achieve the right effect. The way photographs of real engines are interpreted has to be seen to be appreciated, showing rust, soot, grime, water and oil deposits. The result being extremely realistic, especially for use on layouts where weathered engines look authentic and workmanlike. Of course there is still a place for those pristine express passenger engines in ex-works condition, these can be left ex works or have a little soot applied to the top of the boiler, it's really up to your individual taste and how you want to remember and recreate these magnificent engines, pure nostalgia!
