Finished Ballast Photos

After using an airbrush to weather the rails, ties and ballast, I decided to post a couple of pictures of the final results. I first hit the rails and ties with Floquil rust and then used Floquil weathered black lightly over the ballast rails and ties. Ballasting is not my favorite part of building a model railroad, but I do like the results. So far I have about 30 feet of double track mainline done with about 70 feet left. And that does not include the yards, secondary track and industrial spurs. I will not do that all once. I'll do the rest of the mainline in Proviso this week and then will switch over to other projects.
