Farmers Point - Track painting

This article was published Nov 16, 2014.

Been waiting for weeks for a O16.5mm track order which never arrives. I know I have about 8 switches in a box somewhere. As Eckhart says, either you do what you can or surrender to the fact that you can´t. Today I did both ..:smile: First I did go through eeeveeery box I have, from the first to the last. After still finding nada, I did surrender to the fact that I probably never will .. until I order more switches. Then those arrive I will probably have a bunch..

So after that, painted a lot tracks including the river bed. Belows shows some new photos on things I found on the way.
