If you are a beginner at model railroading and are looking for a simple and effective way to add weathering to the tracks on your layout, then look no further than the Track Painters available from Woodland Scenics.
Available in 3 authentic track weathering colours (Rusty Rail, Steel Rail, and Weathered Tie) these paint pens can be used on any scale of track, before or after its installation. They are so simple to use that anyone can produce realistically weathered tracks.
Have a look at the video below to see just how easy it is
Unlike other ways of weathering track there is no clean-up required, you just need to put the lids back on.
