I painted the roof paper with full strength Floquil Primer. The roof stack was painted with Floquil Rail Brown. When dry, I dipped the vent in some Hunterline Light Gray A&I.



I'll let the Primer cure for a day and then I'll add weathering.

Here is a look at the roof from a rear view. You can see I've added tar around the edges on the inside of the marquee sign. Sweaty Betty's sign is not glued at this time.

I then added the rolled roofing paper supplied by Bar Mills. The nail holes were already embossed in the paper.



I forgot to show this view of the 2X4's flush with the top of the roof deck. So, here ya go! ;D

I then painted the 2x4's, top and bottom, with the trim color, Polly Scale Pacemaker Red.



I also added two short braces to the underside of the roof deck.

I changed things up a little on the side kitchen roof. I took scale 2x4s and glued them flush to the top of the roof card stock.

Sweaty Betty's construction work continues after the subs took a little break.

I primed the wood roof sign with Polly Scale ATSF Cat Whisker Yellow and let dry. When dry I painted the edges of the Sweaty Betty's roof sign with Floquil Old Silver as I did with the roof marquee signs.



When that dried I added the Sweaty Betty's sign. I built frame work to support the roof sign.

I also made it removable so the track could be cleaned without chancing a break on the coal ramp.





I'll have something new to add next Thursday.

No need for a step by step here but you get the idea.

In the next photo you can see a second drain pipe with more water and a small puddle. The water is a piece of cellophane food wrap glued in place. I then covered it with Floquil Crystal Cote. Looks like water.

Next to the dirt road is a drain pipe with a little water draining out.
