There's a good article in the Feb RM about weathering, written by one of our own, the creator of Black Sheep Lane, Elvinley.

1.Light airbrush as a base coat
2.Dry brush with matt black enamel (brush strokes)  (do make sure your brush is very dry)
3.Dry brush with railmatch underframe dirt (stipple)  (you can leave a 'bit' more paint on the brush)
