  1. Weather My Trains is a full time, licensed business and an authorized importer and exporter.
  2. Weathering is my core business.  Manufacturer's new releases take priority over all commissioned work. I usually have a backlog that ebbs and flows but I do my best to keep the line moving. Your patience is genuinely appreciated but if you wish to have your models returned please just ask.
  3. All prices on this website are USD$ unless otherwise specified. Canadian, Australian and New Zealand weathering orders are in CAD$ unless specified otherwise. 
  4. Prices below are for HO scale weathering only. Extra work quoted on request.  For N scale weathering, please use a 0.7 x HO rate multiplier, for O gauge please use a 2 x HO rate multiplier. Steam loco and tender are classified as 2 items (Locomotive and a car).  Scaletrains Big Blow turbines are 2 locos and 1 freight car for pricing purposes. 
  5. Weathering colors are custom acrylic mixes blended specifically to make your models look their absolute BEST using my 50 years of fine art/colour mixing experience.
  6. 15% weathering discount will be automatically applied on shipments of 4 items but no discounts on Potash cars. 
  7. Worldwide service/shipping available. References are available on request. 
  8. I am an authorised ESU LokSound dealer.  DCC work is quoted on request once work scope is known.  Weathering work takes priority over stand-alone decoder installs.
