I laid the track on cork, then tack pins held it in place.

I then poured over the granite ballast, this is Gaugemasters, GM115 N-Gauge ballast, looks like sand!

Moved this about with a small brush, once done, sprayed afine mist of water over it, then using the dropper VERY close to the ballast, drop the 50/50 glue/water mix with a drop of washing-up liquid in over the ballast.

By pre-soaking the ballast the glue mix seems to absorb straight in.

I then went over the rails with the dark red rust from rail match 2405, and before this was dry went over it with sleeper grime 2406.

I think it looks ok, where you can still see spots of red that have run down the rail, having ALL of the rail the dark red rust colour looked wrong to me, too red!

Sorry about the blurr on second picture, couldn't get it any better!
