I just got a roll of white seamless and went outside to take some quick test shots in preparation for documenting some of the work that I did this winter. 

I did a little grinding on some of my Bachmann hoppers to simulate the commonly rusted out areas.  The weathered mouse from the 2010 The Modelers Annual provided inspiration…

Thanks guys,
I have a string of 4 Bachmann 2 bays, 2 Bachmann 3 bays (made by grafting some 2 bays) and one RY Models 3 bay hopper that have been weathered for rock service.   
Over the winter, I got into production mode and fabricated proper EBT style working coupler lift bars that operate Accucraft 1/32 scale couplers. 

I have some RY hoppers that I will weather for coal service… just getting up the nerve to start that project. Geoff

Very nice work Geoff. The photos, in the words of our noble leader, are satisfactory too.

That's the way to take the ball and run with it, Geoff. Is the rust really that red or is it the way the camera processes color? -- Russ

Not that red, seems to change with camera settings.  For instance, the second photo posted is better than the last one.  I am still figuring out the white balance and metering while using the white background. Geoff

Well done Geoff, subtle and effective. Makes me want to haul mine out. However the coal would not prtobably create such a dusty effect.
