You can weather a train by using various chalks and powders found in local hobby stores. I use the Tamiya Weathering Master (looks like an eye shadow kit) in rust colors, browns, soot, tans, etc. Spray a dull clear coat to seal it in. Use various sizes of eye shadow brushes to apply for precision. You can also use q-tips for applicators. If you are good at airbrushing and for a more permanent look that’s a good way to go. Good luck and happy hobbying!
