For the first time I have taken the airbrush to the layout. I have blended all the track area with sleeper grime, black and a little gloss varnish in places. After the airbrushing, the track was cleaned with thinners and then with a track rubber, the whole area was then vacuumed to pick up all the debris. I am not a fan of this type of cleaner as it leaves residue, but for this job it is essential. I use liquid track cleaners from this point.
I weathered the sides of the platform as well, the top will be done later. Most of the Platform fencing is now glued on, this will also be lightly weathered at the same time as the top.
I also gave a dusting to the road, the level crossing and the goods yard buildings.
