I have 45-year old cars on the model train table downstairs, with the natural "dust of aging" on them. Looks ok to me.
The dust in your house is not scale. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.modeltrainforum.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif[/IMG]
Yes, weathering and house dust are two different things. We don’t allow dust to accumulate on the other things in our home. Why would we allow it on our trains?
It’s not necessarily prototypical either. Most passenger cars and locomotives did take a trip on the wash track every now and then.
