Just wondering is there any simple setup for giving NEW Hornby track a special coating of some kind in order to make it more rust resistant.
I've just been reading the threads re: Which Track? and see that some tracks are nickel and therefore rust resistant but others are just steel and prone to rust
in say a damp garage. One mentioned was Hornby track.

I'm particularly intrigued as to how a simple electro plating operation might be set up. This would involve a bit of science I know, but I'm sure something can be done fairly cheaply in a bath
of solution whereby your track is connected to a positive charge and say a piece of copper is connected to negative. The low charge then forces the copper to migrate importantly VERY evenly
to your track.

I interested to hear comment even if you think I'm daft.
