Quick & Easy Weathering of the Trinity Tank Car

Pelle Soeeborg is one of today’s most skilled model railroaders.  He has written several how-to books and his work has been featured on the cover of Model Railroader magazine 13 times! Pelle recently purchased three Trinity 31K Gallon Tank Cars to be serviced at the Safety Kleen Oil Recycling Business on his all new Midwestern-themed layout.   After Pelle finished weathering his first tank car, he sent us a photo of the model parked next to the recycling facility – WOW! We were astounded by how realistic the scene appeared and asked Pelle if he would consider writing a weathering how-to article.  Pelle is always willing to share his talent and kindly provided simple step-by-step instructions.


We truly appreciate Pelle taking the time to write this blog.  If you decide to try Pelle’s weathering techniques, please share photos with us on our Facebook page. If you’re still hesitant to try weathering because you’re concerned about ruining an expensive model, we understand because we’ve been there too.  Our Christmas sale has the perfect solution.  Start with our $9.99 boxcar kit.  After practicing on a few boxcars, step-up to our super-detailed Rivet Counter Tank Car for just $24.99 each when you buy 12 or more.  That’s a $14 savings per car.  Problem solved.
