Which for weathering, which for fleet?

Compare the two versions of auto parts cars. Note that one's paint is "happier" than the other. Which set best reflects their look as new? Which then, should I weather? Ta.

You would have to check references, such as a historical society associated with the Southern Pacific, to see which colors are more accurate.

I agree, weather all four of them to different levels.  The variation will make them that more believable.  No two cars weather the same.

Hear ya. Weather all. I was just wondering which of the two looked new-ish. I'll have to dig out my Emery Gulash films and see... I think I recall one shot of these cars where the narrator mentions that they are the first of their kind.
