Hi Andrew

Have you considered making a start on the ballasting between the running lines? I know you have the track up on foam, and that you may well have other point motors to fit/replace, but presumably there are places (such as between the tracks in the 3rd and 4th pics you posted) where you could start laying down some? Obviously you'd want a darker colour, maybe brown or dark grey, but it ought to look very effective when done.

Regards,
Gavin

hi gavin
Yeah that is a good idea. All the future point motors i'll be installing will be peco surface mounted point motors as they work well.
I have already got some medium dark brown ballast that i got a few months back so i will do some ballasting once i've finished painting.

UPDATE TIME!!!!
Painting of the road has now started and the scatter is ready to go down. I'll put pictures up once more work is done (hopefully soon)
