PEIR track in Sketchup

Based on the notes on track construction in Sketchup I thought I’d try mocking up a short length of straight track using Sketchup to help me to visualize how it would look. I used the same ballast/roadbed profile that Boyd noted in his profile and then added in the ties and rail that Swinyard noted. I drew this for 30″ gauge to approximate the appearance of this track if all I ever did was move the rails in for On30 modelling instead of the correct 42″ gauge of the prototype. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
