QUOTE (eddscott @ 9 Feb 2009, 00:17) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I'm guessing some washes to darken the sleepers before laying ballast? The rusty rails looks a good idea - could I still use that having used concrete sleepers? I don't want some parts of the track looking too old given that the sleepers are concrete and its a modern image layout.

Many thanks

Hi Eddscott,

A very thin wash of black accrylic paint works well after ballasting to tone down the sleepers and bright newness of ballast, use it very thinned down and build it up darker in places if you wish, for example around a depot area.
