    Well, thanks to all your moral support, I have tackled the first step in weathering my track. It looks so much better already!!!

    As per Fifer's suggestions, I will be running a line of grimy black down the center of the tracks, but for now, here's another shot of how it looks.

    Rats! Forgot the pic!

    Edit: meant to say, the unused siding in the background hasn't been done yet.

    It looks good, Val. The rusty rail in the last photo is especially convincing. :thumb:

    Thanks again everyone. It really does make a huge difference to the look of things.

    Casey, all track is done with the same colour paint so I think the difference in look is due to different lighting and/or exposures.

    Steve - better get busy man!


    :D Val

    Very nice Val. What a difference it makes and as brakies says it does make the track look smaller. Looking forward to seeing some rolling stock on it to get the realistic feeling

    "That young Val does nice work."
