Reply to "My first MTH locomotive and I’m curious..."

I don't know what you paid for that locomotive.  Rather than try to repaint it---if it does have zinc pest with its inevitable results---perhaps you can find out what a replacement shell would cost.  It may save you a lot of work, since you'd have to remove all of the accoutrements anyway to sand and repaint it anyway.

If you're into trying to reproduce the real world in miniature, then the rotting zinc pest could be perceived as regular wear and tear results from being exposed to the elements.
