That does look like it has been there for quite some time Aaron. Brilliantly done with both the photography and the weathering.
My thoughts exactly

That's very effective!
Love the spices idea - I'm guessing cinnamon? My WD Baldwin's smokebox door is still smeared with the cocoa powder I used for some temporary weathering...

Mmmm - that looks 'crusty'
several more in similar condition and you would have the makings of Barry scrapyard in the 60's and 70's.

Thanks again, I'm also pleased with the overall effect. Letting the weeds do their thing would further improve it..
that is indeed cinnamon, with a little paprika here and there for highlights. I particularly like how the oil has wept out of each joint in the motion, and turned very dark.
I'll have to remember that, when I get round to bodging a spare LGB Koppel body, into my own boneyard loco.. The owner of this one, informs me he'd like to "restore" it with a motor driving the rear axle, a-la "Moreton" "preserved" at the Yandina Ginger Factory
