A thought has just occurred to me. I wonder when and how you are going to weather the new tracks? I think it may be easier if you put 'rust' on the rails before you glue it in place. With my layout, I glued the track down first, and ended up with great backache on painting the sides of the rails in a rust finish afterwards. Of course, if you are just going to use a spray, then it will be much easier for the weathering - I used a brush - I'm not too good at using spray paints. And on my layout, I used the old fashioned PVA and water mixture, with a small dot of washing up liquid, which, of course, has set the tracks and ballast solid. They have survived for at good forty years!

 

Best regards,

 

Rob.

Still trying the new viewpoints, and maybe this one comes out a bit better.

It does help to have a train in Platform 6 too.

We continue to follow the WD, as it creeps towards signals at the end of the Down slow.

Those signals will remain at danger though, as the time has come for the A5 to set off on its way towards Grimsby.
