Engine house tracks

I've been working on the tracks around the facility lately, mainly weathering them.

I used some black and brown Bragdon powders to make the tracks look dirty and oily.  In a few spots I wanted to make it look wet from fuel spills.  I achieved this by using a small dollop of  glossy Mod Podge and thinned it to a wash and then applied it to the areas where spills would likely be.  It soaked in and when dried it looked wet.  I also did this around some of the piping and hoses.

The other thing I added were some wheel stops.  These were purchased off of Etsy from a guy who makes some N scale 3D printed items.  These are pretty nice little wheel stops.
