Trackwork ...

Here are a few photos of the trackwork. It is going slowly partly because of the spikes that I am using and partly because I am trying to be extra careful since this is going to be on the end of the "module." Since I am going for radio control with batteries, I am not concerned with having individual 39' lengths of rail. One of which is half that because of being at the joint, of course.

Adding a little bit of coloring ...

Using the modified FastTracks Sweepstick as a track gauge

Spiking is coming along, but there is a small problem ...I forgot to distress the ties!

After distressing the ties, I moved the rails back into position. The ditressed ties are the discolored ones past the end of the short length of rail ...
And that's where things stand at the moment. I don't have to wake up at 4am tomorrow, so a little more time can be spent working on this tonight ... maybe.

  1. Jim, I may have missed something but why have you had to modify the Sweepsticks and what have you done to them?
