    I have made a simple video on how I lay down my ties. I hope this is

    helpful to you. :)
    I am trying to make a complete "how to"on handlaying track for people who

    don't know how but want to learn it. :)

    I am using a simple camera that has video capabilities. The video is shot

    at 15 frames per second and is not all that good [as some keep reminding


    SOOOO if you want better video tutorials then someone send me a spare

    camcorder and I will be more then happy to make decent video tutorials

    [ALL FREE of course] for everyone that wants them.

    Thanks for watching :)

    Darn! I thought this was about tie-dying, not dying ties! :cry:
  3. Good idea i also found that adding a teaspoon of india ink to a bottle of 70% rubbing alcohol works good also and makes for a good weathering wash.

    Um er, mountians the forum is trains not the 1960's :D LOL

    railroader, can't seem to find indian ink here. Also I don't like using alcohol if I can help it. :) The fumes etc, anyhow, this is just "one more" way to do something we all do who handlay track :D
