How To Weather Your G Scale Trains With Guest Charlie Zimmerman “Large Scale Consolidated Live”

Play Video

     On this episode of Large Scale Consolidated Live our guest is Charlie Zimmerman. Charlie has been into model railroading since 1982 and G scale since 2010. Charlie has his own garden railroad, the Smoke & Oak Railroad of which you can see many videos of on his YouTube channel “Garden RR”.
     One thing you will notice right away when seeing Charlie’s railroad is he prides himself on having unique locomotives and rolling stock which includes doing prototypical weathering. During this show Charlie will show us some examples of custom work he has done but the primary focus is going to be on showing everyone how to weather a boxcar. We’ll go from a clean car to a fully weathered one by the end of the show and anyone should be able to weather their own trains after watching this show.
     We would also like to mention that Charlie is also a Contributing editor of Live Steam and Backyard RR magazine. In addition to that he is also an excellent photographer with several photos in Garden Railways and Railpace magazine over the years.
