Good afternoon,

Märklin's C track should really be seen up close, (have a lookBlink )

You see the devil is in the details!

Yep, other than maybe needing some matte finish to take the shine off, or if you have the time rusting the rail sides and a black wash on the ballast and then matte finish, its pretty darn nice.

I agree, and with a bit of natural weathering and blending into the scenic materials around it can look very realistic!

I found the videos below interesting. Even not understanding what he says the images give an idea of what ballasts exist and their looks.







In this channel there is a video with a banana train that is amazing :)


H0 gauge. 90% Märklin, 10% Brawa. I tend to have several Crocs, S2/6, Cs /BR18.1, Ks /BR59, BR96s and BR45s. I like Pacifics. BR50 with cabin tender is also a favorite. The smaller ones I like the most are BR94 and BR95.
