Layout Construction – Ballasting

The next stage of the layout construction for Gatport Airwick is the addition of ballast to the track. Before the ballast could be added, the sleepers had to be painted in a weathered concrete colour using a mix from the Tamiya range of acrylic paints, then the sides of the rails were given a steel rail weathering effect using a paint pen from the Woodlands Scenics range.

The ballast that was used is a blend of colours from the Woodlands Scenics range and given plenty of days to dry. The location of the Hornby foam try is where platforms 1 and 2 will be positioned.
