    I finished painting the rails today!:thumb: I am very pleased with the results. I have added some of the wiring in for the signals. I am waiting for them to arrive. Here are some pictures. What do you think?

    They're a little... blindingly... oxide red. Rust is usually duller than that.

    I hope that didn't sound too harsh.

    Not harsh, just honest. I will second that opinion. My only thought in your favor is that sometimes colors are not represented correctly in photographs and appear differently than they really are.

    Try an oxide Brown, it's the kind of rust you find on the real rail ROW!

    Hi Andy! I don't come to the Gauge as often these days so I just noticed you have made the big move, welcome to the Smokies! I prefer flat black for the rails as any shade of brown is too bright for my tastes, also the flat black makes the rail seem smaller which is very important in N scale.
