...or something to that affect.
While I was not whitewashing anything recently, I have done a good but of track painting. Or I was until I ran out of brown paint, and as it’s Memorial Day today none was to be had. However the results so far are looking quite good, especially as this is only the second time I have ever painted track. Although I know now that it should really be done once the track is glued or pinned down permanently.
A cutting has also been made in the hill for the street to pass through. This was done using my Japanese pull saw that I got for Christmas, it’s one of the few times I’ve had the chance to use it, and it made an excellent cut. That area along with the area behind the soon to be retaining wall have been lightly brushed in a red earthy color, to make the hill look less like a giant piece of chalk.
Ballasting and adding of greenery was due to be done today, I typically do this outside as I find ballasting in particular to be an extremely messy business. However it ended up raining today, so that will be out off until Thursday probably, after the area under the tracks has been painted.
( @Edwardian, Honorable Mayor, what would be the best color for the area not covered in ballast in an medium sized SECR station?)
