Finishing Your Track.

Once painted and ballasted, track blends into the scenery. Note the different ballasts used in the yard and on the mainline.

Modelers often spend hours working on locomotives and cars without ever thinking about the track beneath them. Model train track can be extremely realistic right out of the box. With some simple work, it can be even better. These techniques will work with almost any type of track. After you’ve laid the track and tested it thoroughly by running trains for a while, paint and ballast will help complete the scene.
