I really haven't had time for this duel but did get the resin ties from Steve of Celticwerks and they came out great. I painted and weathered two of them, the two types of bolted plates, just to see how they look painted.
that's some cool stuff and painting there Rob Just one question Rob: the wood of the sleeper, is it going to stay that light? I do like the look, but my experience with them is that they are very dark in stead of light. The get several treatments to become weatherproof, and in combination with dirt and spilt oil they become very dark brown

Thanks fellas...Wouts, Deano and Andy.
Wouter, Not sure but I think the older ones were just wood and not treated like modern sleepers. i too think they are dark but looking at images of old tracks and sleepers they are faded and light. One ref pic for you.
It's been some time since T and I did any work on this duel so I thought I would get it going again. The main reason being that I needed to use the wooden parts of the rail car for something I am working on for the Spring.
I have two rail cars so this might be a duel, duel lol.
