I have done this on my Ntrak module and will do it eventually on my layout. I used different sizes of basswood strips on the outside against the rails to simulate cross tie sized pieces that border rails in some streets and on the inside with a flange gap. I colored the strips with a dark walnut colored felt tip marker that is used to repair furniture. I used grey poster board for the street and the paving between the rails and wood strips. I used a black fine point roller tip pen to draw the cracks, joints and repairs in the pavement. I weathered the whole thing with black and browns and an air brush. I have to say that it looks pretty good. I got many compliments at our club's setup at Christmas. Someday I need to figure out how to post pics here someday so I can let you all see some of this stuff. I got a lot of good ideas from the Pentrex video "Street Running". [img]smile.gif[/img]
There's only one reality left. We're here and it's now.
You get ahold of that and hang on tight,
or you might as well be dead.
