I got some thin foam from Office Works, and more from a dollar store at Birralea.
Added it on top to see if it looked like bitumen.
So this is what we started with. The white foam is about 2 mm thick and came in 5 sheets, all white.
The black sheet came in a pack of 5 different colours. Only one black sheet :(
It nearly comes up to rail height. So a track cleaner gently rubbed should clean the head of the rail.
Started to chalk and rub with a cloth after white glue set. I will finish this off tomorrow. I am happy it will work. Also finish off covering the white with black.
Got a parcel from States. I just cannot find things like pallets, workshop machinery skips etc here, got them all in one box. A bit pricy though.
Skips and pallets and hand held pallet lifts. and milk churns for Depot as well as bicycles and stuff such as that.
