Rusting Tracks - John Devlin

My wife Geri gave me the idea of using a cue tip with a point to apply the paint to the rails. CVS makes one with a pointed tip for applying makeup that fits into the grove of Gargraves track. I hold the track upside down on a slight angle (before the track is laid down and painted). The cue tip holds more paint than a brush. Here are some pictures.
