Here we have a Rock Island covered hopper at the Farmer’s Coop. The roadway serving as the other team track at Colonel’s Crossing. The road surface is three layers of card glued down and allowed to dry thoroughly. It was then painted with several coats of emulsion paint tinted with drawing ink and water colour paints giving it a flat slightly textured finish. A black fine line pen is used to represent the joins and cracks in the concrete.

One of the industries served by CC is drilling mud which arrives by truck and is then loaded into box cars. The important thing with a team track on a model is it is so versatile and needn’t take up too much room.
