Track laying

I’m thinking of cutting my rail into 30 foot lengths so you get a clickety clack. I bought some C&L Finescale fishplates. These are the 4mm ones because I am using code 70 track and I have some 7mm ones if I ever find some heavier track for the standard section. They look good:

All the ties are in place. You can see the mix of ties. They all need sanding down level. I need to cut some of the long ties down to 8′ for the standard gauge. They are currently soaking in ink and IPA:

The NMRA are doing a modular meet in April and I’m taking my modules. I do work better with a deadline!
