Weathering Wagons

A week or so back I posted about almost finishing two W&U trains and mentioned that the 16 tonners for The Last Tram needed to be weathered.  Tonight they were.  The one of the right is to demonstrate the before look (obviously!) while the one on the left was done using my preferred Tamiya stuff - in this case the B pack.  I am pretty sure they were empty on the last run from Upwell to Wisbech and as such the interior probably needs a bit more - presently it can best be described as grime but I am thinking of doing some shiny bits by dry brushing some silver then weathering again - coal having scrapped the bottom/sides as it was emptied for the last time.  Good idea or not?  Would love to hear some thoughts either as comments or via email.
