All decked out and no place to go



I finished adding the deck to the wharf at Aquia Landing. I sanding it lightly to smooth some of the bumpy planks. Then I wiped it with a rag with Minwax Golden Pecan stain. This gave the wood the look of a new structure. I had previously stained the planks with various shades of alcohol and inks and stains before gluing them on the joists. So the deck of the wharf has a nice variegated look.
The model wharf is 8 feet long and 2 to 2.5 feet wide.
I dropped a piece of flex track on the wharf and test ran a loco just to see how it will look.
Next step is to lay the track on the wharf and install the wye where the wharf meets the shore.

  1. Did you leave any space between the blanks for expansion/contraction?
