Morning, all.


Three day weekend for me.  Haircut later this morning.  Mowing this afternoon in the heat.  Kids are coming next week, need to clean the house and especially the basement.

Morning,

I am just sitting in the back yard looking at our cat while he is looking at a Robin looking at a worm. Maybe the coffee is not strong enough?

I've been painting turnouts and flextrack, in preparation for the visible staging yard.  I prime with grey ("Bob Ross" brand) gesso, then do a slightly thinned layer of dark brown.  I make sure the gesso covers the rail, there's nothing like seeing shiny rail web/base to look funny.  Next I'll paint the rail, and finally I'll probably drybrush/selectively paint some ties.  The net effect looks good enough for the yard, particularly since I expect to mostly bury the ties in yard sand/cinders.
