re : concrete flooring for sheds - have a look at model rail  261 july 2019 - i have a copy but no colour copier or access, you could obtain back copy if you dont have one - step by step guide.


Crewearpley40 refers to an article in the July 2019 edition of Model Rail which sounds interesting. I don't subscribe to this publication and it is now difficult - if not impossible - to find a copy as Aug 2019 is on the shelves. Has anyone got the mag and could possibly scan, and post to the thread, the relevant page(s)?

Thank you in advance.

I have a copy.
If you PM me your address, Iíll pop it in the post for you.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Iíve used DAS clay. Rolled into a cigar shape, placed between the tracks and flattened using a piece of dowel of suitable length. The dowel makes it level with the tops of the track and cuts off the excess.
 I then use small pieces of DAS placed onto the surface and rolled in using the dowel, this gives a cracked surface effect. A wagon can be ran along the tracks. I have found careful use of a Peco track rubber is sufficient to clean the track.
