What I did to achieve this:
1. Dust & Scratches filter with 5/92 as settings
2. used clone and repair tool for the bigger problems
3. put a levels-layer in multiply-mode on top, with a gradient mask (white on the top, black at the bottom)
4. duplicated the levels-layer for stronger effect
5. made another layer for lighten/darken areas and painted black and white on it

Good work Marc,
The Levels and Multiply really brought out faded detail.
The high Dust & Scratches setting worked well.
No lost or softened detail.

Many thanks to you both for your kind words!

Looking back, I think the darker areas are too dark, should give it another try with a different layer mask...

I like this because it's not too overdone. Nice one.

It's better to burn out than fade away!
