We can learn a lot from the military modeling community, not just on rust and weathering. Here's a nice blog how-to from AK-Interactive on getting wood effects, among other things:

Dave,
I've been using AK for about a year now.
This engine was done with AK Washes and Aim Powders.

Ha!, And there I was thinking it was a real loco!!!, All I can say is WOW, you did a great job. Maybe I'll have to try yet another new paint.

Thanks also, Dave for this link.

Tony,
Once you get the hang of this stuff, you'll be weathering everything in site. Practice on something inexpensive first, once you get the technique down, I think you'll love this stuff.
The only problem is deciding what colors to get, since all the colors are aimed at the military guy.
Don't be one of those guys that won't cross that imaginary line in the hobby shop from railroad to military.
