      I agree. I went through one of the spray bottles pretty quickly and I only have a couple hundred feet I'm treating.

      Next project is replacing the temporary 2x10 bridge uphill from Majestic towards Pearce.  I have some old growth redwood T&G that I got from Rooster, and Ive been saving it for a very visible project.  I cut up a bunch of it and built a bridge deck.

       

       

      Now I have to remove the existing track and temporary bridge, add guard rails, cast the footings and get it in place.

      That is beautiful work. Is that code 250 rail? Looks very realistic.

      Yes. Code 250 SS.  The wood is beautiful.  I stained it with a dark walnut stain, and it brought out a *LOT* of the red.

      Beautiful bridge.  I like the way the color comes out.
