Specially for jr ;-)

The sleeper at the origin is Friedrich Lohmueller's original CSG version 
as comparison. The others are isowood versions.

thank you.  fwiw, if the centre one's colour had a smidgen more "creosote"..

from the mannequin's POV, along the top-outside-corner of each rail, that is,
I'd expect most wear on the inner "edges" due to the wheel shape.

damn.  I was about to suggest the cab should be in "British Racing Green" with
gold trim ;-).

I could not get a can of gold trim as the shops were closed.

I was not entirely honest when I said earlier that the Apollo Maximus 
clothes were not uv-mapped. They are, but do not have dedicated 
image_maps attached to them. However, it is possible to use image_maps 
within this uv-mapped universe of course. Here is what I came up with today.

A very detailed work, Thomas!
Have you planned to add a bit of ageing also to the yellow / black bands
and the glass?

Thank you indeed Paolo!

The yellow/black bands have bit of (oily) smudges added but I would 
prefer to keep them whole otherwise for some reason.  The glass... hmm. 
I didn't consider those I am afraid. Something to think about.
