Old West Railroad Train 
I tackled the coaches this evening, with a matt black spray undercoat followed by a drybrush of Foundry Conker Brown and Rawhide. They look a little lighter than I wanted but ended up not too bad. I've also added a few extra touches to the locomotive.
I decided to leave the wheels off the carriages for the moment, as they look too tall with them on next to a 28mm figure. There's not a lot I can do about the engine, however, so it'll have to be a little higher and a bit overscale than the rest of the train. Never mind. Isuppose I could cut the roof of the cab down and then glue the top back on?
I may add a few extras tomorrow, including filling in the screw heads on the locomotive and adding some numbers and writing to the train but I have a late meeting so won't get home until 9pm or thereabouts, so progress may well be mimimal.
