  1. Thanks. Yeah I do have a bottle of that, I used it on the buses you can see in the photos. It’s very good but I still got sticky fingerprints on half the glazing! I think it’s maybe more a technique issue than materials.. cheers, Mark
  2. Thanks very much. The product I used were these; https://www.dccconcepts.com/product/legacy-models-80x-pre-etched-sleepers-1-6mm-4mm-scale-straight-track/ I’d bought a packet a while back for a project that never got anywhere.

  13. Lovely photo, gives a good idea of ballast colour in those days. Mark
