Works fine on my iPad.
Thanks for the update Ross
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Shaping up well Ross thanks for posting.

IPA is very handy for track cleaning and getting paint off rails if one leaves it to dry a bit too much. It's also very very good at smashing down the surface tension of water so it's great for use in spraying ballast when wetting before using water/PVA mix.

Some chaps use IPA/water/PVA for gluing the ballast too as again the surface tension is lower; on a technical level it should dry quicker as well as a water/IPA mix has a lower boiling point, and it think vapour pressure, than either component alone.

The only problem is that it does evaporate quite quickly... and burns rather impressively.

Can see it now. A great video with some interesting ideas. It has given me food for thought.

Another thing on IPA - it will shift acrylic paint pretty easily so be careful if you've painted your sleepers with it.

Very nice tips. Many thanks for this.
I may have to try the ballast method next time I lay some track.

Hi. Have just read your thread and enjoyed it thoroughly. Lots of great ideas. Love the tweaks on t-track. Also enjoyed your soundtracks to the videos, you have a knack for atmosphere, as indeed does the layout itself :thumbsup:
Just one small point; the purple letters on your YouTube posts are nearly unreadable which is a shame given that the info provided will have been very interesting. Anyway, that aside, I look forward to the next installment. Cheers.

Hi there.
Glad you're enjoying the thread.
Many thanks for the heads up with the purple text. I really appreciate that. It's been noted and I'll change it on future uploads. Thanks once again.
Ross
