Weathering O Gauge Track

I've weathered HO and N gauge track but never Lionel O gauge FasTrack. How hard can it be? Well for a first try I guess it will work, especially because this track will actually be used inside the tunnel. The only thing worse than an unsatisfactory result is not trying at all. I used the very unpopular old Floquil weathering markers which for this size track work better than with HO or N. While I had the track on the workbench I also gave the rails a good cleaning, which is a good idea after weathering the track anyway. You may also notice that I added a black wash to the plastic molded ballast. If you'd like to try your own we have plenty of Lionel FasTrack, paints, and washes here waiting for you at Branson Hobby Center.
