Thanks. While all of my diamonds are only for show; i.e., only one route is active and the other is just for the scene, I do have a lot of them. On the current layout, I have four at Blue Island, 10 at Dolton, four at Hohman Ave, two at Graselli, four at Calumet, and three at CP 502. And actually I have sixteen that didn't make my current design at Brighton Park and Ash Street.





Love all of the diamonds, nice work.

Totally hot!  The trackwork has that "grungy" look of a well-used line.

,you are using School Glue which most people tell me never to use. I guess I am not the only one who does it anyway :D

I've never heard this before but I've used a mixture of Elmer's school and regular white glue for scenery, cork, track, and ballast among other things and haven't had a single issue. And my Blue Island section is going on 10 years with five cross country moves.

I hope whoever told you not to use white glue also dosnt sell you something else ;) I mix it roughly 50/50 depending on the application (and use it full strength for various scenery tasks) and wouldn't even consider using anything else. Plus the bulk containers are CHEAP.

White glue - PVA - is not school glue. Similar consistancies but different formulas.
