The fronts are very time consuming to build, as they need to be built to fit.

Today I stained some ties.
The HOn3 crossties and turnout ties, and the HO/HOn3 dual gauge ties.
I bought an extra bag of turnout ties as it's easy to cut them to regular crosstie length if needed.
I used water based stain mixed with alcohol and some ink.
It dried really quick.

The track Laying has begun.
I made the first stretch today.

The HO/HOn3 double gauge trackage is a bit tricky to do. But now that I've spiked the first pieces, it feels as I'm on the right track. ?
Now I have to drill the holes for the turnout motors so I can install them as well. It's really fun!
