It’s raining here in Charlottetown and everyone seems to have found a book to read, a craft project to work on, or some other pursuit to indulge in. My effort has been to get the rest of the track ballasted on my layout.
I spent a lot of time tamping and dressing all this fresh ballast around so none was on top of the ties and absoloutely none was going to wind up glued to the sides of the rails. I always think it funny to have so diligently invested patience into getting it all ready and then I start fogging it with water and glue. The photo above was taken only a few minutes ago and it shows things as they are right now. I like to keep the area I’m working on quite wet so everything is saturated and eventually the glue soaks in nicely. However, there is always a time like the one right now where I’m raising my mug of tea and saying a quiet prayer that once again I get away with this approach.
