It's Not Just freight Cars Around Here!

While waiting for other things to dry, I took sometime to work on layout details. Namely telegraph poles.
According to the chart at the back of employee timetables I have for the Cayuga Sub, the area I'm modeling only had the one crossbuck. So I grabbed a supply of Rix Products telegraph poles and glued the cross bucks in place.
A quick spray with grimy black overtop of the brown plastic results in nice weathered creosote look.
The insulators require a special touch.
They are first painted with a silver paint and once that drys, Tamiya transparent green is applied over top.
They really look like glass!
Now to mount on the layout.
