Well I got me some mighty fine S gauge, on a really nice raised bed. Question is, how best to paint it?  The track can't be prised out of the plastic bed, and I really don't want to paint every gap. Suggestions hive mind????

The bed looks weird. I would PVA sand on it.

"Dear Prime Minister May.  As a priority in your trade talks with President Trump, can you please agree to scrap the ludicrous import and handling charges for S gauge track (and other wargaming hobby goods) from the United States, yours Ignatieff"

S gauge track arrived.  Gorgeous.  But flipping expensive to bring in
