You guy's that always think ahead are amazing.
If I'd been "thinking ahead" I'd have backed up the whole hard drive and not just some of it. As it is, I just have a bunch of tedious typing to do..........

I used it on this plastic roof and it turned out nicely - it looks like real metal with real rust now.
I originally bought the solutions at Michael's Craft Store.
The paint has held up VERY well over the years.

Don't give the Polyswitch idea away entirely. Always good to have protection.
I use RUE 3 amps for bigger locos such as the Shay.
If speed of tripping needs to be faster try using 3 x 1 amp versions wired in parallel.

I followed up on the lead given me by Old John, and thought it would be very useful to share the results. The company that used to advertise in Finescale Railroader is still around, HPD Inc. out of Florida. Their core business is repairing dental drills, and one of the repair parts they use is a quarter-inch OD, eighth-inch ID stainless steel ball bearing, made in the USA. Apparently not all of the bearings they source will pass their criterion of spinning at 300,000 rpm (!) so they sell these to the hobby market… current price is 35 cents each, and that includes shipping.Needless to say, I ordered a hundred of these; at that price I figured I’d get me a lifetime supply. You can order these by calling the HPD shop at 386-719-7113. I spoke with a gentleman named Bi... less

Once it warmed up to room temperature, it worked just fine. I know photographers would store their unused film in the refrigerator, it extended its shelf life. So maybe you could store your glue in the fridge, right behind the beer.

They were kind enough to allow me to shoot some spectacular video, including CAB RIDES, of several of their Main Lines, which cover three different eras: Steam, 1940's-50's, and Modern. You've got to see this to believe it! Here's the link:

Post a bunch of details of it showing the weathering. It looks like the painting is perfectly to my taste, not too much, just right, and I would like to have a model to imitate. I have a big 2-8-8-2 that would look great with that kind of treatment.

@Terry Burr - PM me so that I can send you a short section of Tenmille ties for you to try. With that the 'chairs' are integral -
