For his last project, Mike Confalone weathers a light gray CN pressure differential hopper. For this car, Mike starts with some oil wash flood weathering and then moves on to more specific weathering methods to match a prototype photo. Finally, with this last car complete, Mike runs a train around to enjoy all the weathered cars set in some finished layout scenes on the Allagash.

Excellent series so far, looking forward to your tips and techniques for locomotives. 

This series has been so enjoyable.  Along with being informative you made it fun watch. Looking forward to more in the future.

What an awesome series full of great information on weathering freight cars. Getting a chance to see all the cars moving together at the end in a train on the layout was icing on the cake!

OK MIKE ...beginning of the video you have a "CANADIEN NATIONAL" cement car, and suddenly few minutes into the video after you turn the car around to do the other side you have a "CANADIAN NATIONAL" cement car...what gives???

It's the law: Canadian law requires one side of a railroad car to be lettered in French as Canadien ... so it's totally prototypical. Been so since 1964.

 thank you  for the input and the reply who ever you are there at TMTV... so as expected  Mike has some "prototypical rolling stock" he is an incredible modler, hes the best since John Allen!..I have  never seen that Canadien vs Canadian on  any many models so it was a first for me, which is why I asked. I apologize I am not that much of a "proto-typical" modler as most of you high end detail guys are, and I dont pay much attention to the "LAWs" in "Canadien" ...As Robin Williams once said, "Canada is really just a loft apartment over a really great party"  Thanks Mike your work is top notch.

I learned quite a bit in theis series.  All the cars look great and quite realistic..

Great series - Any chance of a steam loco?

Any chance of a steam loco?

Not from Mike. Mike models what he knows and he knows New England diesels from the 60s up to today.

If we can find an avid steam modeler who is also good at weathering, we'd love to bring him on TMTV. Any suggestions?
