SR&RL 15 - A Closer Look

Some acrylic tube paints are used for the rust spots, while most of the weathering is done with Bragdon powders and PanPastels.

Woodland Scenic figures are used for the fireman and engineman. They are a bit more modern than should be used but for now they seem to work.


  1. I'm curious about the white lettering, which I think you've applied to a number of y9ur models. I assembled and painted an HOn30 kit for a SR&RL 2-6-2 in the 1980s that had white lettering decals included, but since then, it seems there is some leaning in the direction of yellow. Do you haven an opinion?

    1. Hi John:
      This lettering on this engine I did white but my Forney is done with CDS dry transfer gold. Many of the older decal sets are white but at one point I was told that current thoughts are they may have been gold. I am in not sure which way my thinking is so I now have one white and one gold. The Forney is covered in the Feb 8 2014 post...hope this helps a bit...George
