This past weekend, while getting ready for the big Show. I decided to throw a couple coats of paint on the railway. Of course I cant do anything without deep thought. Especially when it comes to design and color. I decided to go bold, and make it all Red. With Black and White as part of the color palette. I know using color palette is way over kill of a term for the Railway. But, it’s my curse.
The railway has been always either just raw wood, or red, silver metal, with some white. But I wanted it to feel older if that is possible. And painted all the trim, even added trim, RED to match the rest of the buildings. Fences will be red or black, and some trim, thats metal on the newer building…1970’s will remain white.
Have I painted the charm away? Yes. But its a fine line of charm and rot. I don’t want the Railway to pop out. So all red and Black allows it to remain in the background.. If that is possible. Lots of care has been taken to keep it all rough, just kept up looking.
