Textures used are mostly from Created and rendered in Blender with no external postprocessing whatsoever. For photo reference I used the many, many images that you can find online, eg.

The model is not meant to be an exact replica of any of them (literally all of them are different) but represents the essence of a derelict steam traction engine from heydays of steam, the late 19th/ early 20th century.
