Weathering a model is an incredibly personal service. Whether you opt for light, medium, or heavy weathering, the quality of the service is the same – we don’t compromise on quality.

The cost of weathering a loco, wagon, etc. is the same across the board and everything we weather receives a full wheel service.

This means we clean the wheels and pickups and then perform a test on our test track before returning the job to you to ensure smooth and reliable performance.
