Wow!! Thanks very much Richard. Awesome!!
I use DAP Fast and Final spackling compound for my roads. You can spread it between the rails, draw a piece of plastic along the rails to make it level, use a small screw driver or something similar, to clear the flange ways beside the rail, and let it dry. When its dry, use a track cleaner, like a Bright Boy to be sure the surface is level, and the rails are clean. Then you can paint it to match the rest of the road. Fast and Final is very useful and cheap! You can get it at any hardware or home improvement store.
Thanks very much Jelani and Richard. Mike I went and did them all on curves... Yea... Was thinking about pouring them with the stuff I used for the road and sidewalk/foundations, but probably a template and some styrene will probably have to work.:-)
I believe there are a couple companies that sell model crossing panels both wood and concrete that you could use to make your crossings both dirt and concrete more realistic.
Really looking good Jennifer! This is great work for your first scenery. I really like your dirt and gravel roads. I have 2 that I have done twice and they don't look nearly as good as yours! Keep up the good work.
Thanks very much Mike and Christopher. It's been a joy working on the layout and the scenery has been a hoot. Pretty much my first attempt; learning as I go. I didn't realize how much better the rolling stock and equipment looks now...The turntable and roundhouse is in now and operating, and the rest of the engine service facilities is coming together as well.
Hey that's really coming to LIFE! :-)
wow, you work fast
