About this blog

This blog is about my current model railroad layout project; The N scale "Summit" layout, which is a freelanced interpretation of the Southern Pacific Tehachapi tunnels and their surroundings. Or at least, that is what it is meant to be. What it will turn out to be is another matter. The banner photo above shows what I want to recreate in N scale.

Painting track

Track layingPosted by lennart Wed, July 14, 2010 19:16:27

Today I painted the track. My main objective was to paint the ME flextrack ties to get rid of the shiny plastic look. I started out with that, spraying both ties and rails with grimy black. The latter was not really necessary since the track came pre-weathred, but it is hard (at least for me) to spray the ties without getting anything on the rails.

I had not intended to spray the unweathered siding rails, since that would probably ruin my newly done tie weathering. But it struck me that I did not really bother, since spraying the siding rails would be that much easier than hand-painting them later. So I did the siding as well. Here is a picture.
