Virgin Railhead 07

Made it down to the workshop before work. . . my wife had to get up early for her work, so, I found myself with a precious hour--I could start work early, or, hit the workshop.  Which to choose. .

Managed to finish sanding the ties--once I finished blocking the high spots, I hit the whole thing with an orbital sander.  I got it pretty flat--but did not go over board, a little up and down will add charm.  Went over everything with a little Burnt Umber and Davie's Gray.

I am pretty excited by the look.  I worked wet with the paint and it was not an issue.

Little bits of progress really add up!  Not to mention, they have all day to dry, in case I can sneak down tonight!
