Reply to "O42 Tubular Track with Gray Ties?"

I've noticed that on some of the newer track I have which I probably picked up about 10 years ago.  with mine it seemed more like the bottoms were unfinished as opposed to specifically being painted grey.  This was on 031 curves and straights.  I always assumed it was just a sign of someone trying to save a penny on production costs.  I also noticed the new track has thinner steel.  I found that out the hard way when I over tightened some screws holding the track down and again when I accidentally stepped on some that was one the ground.  The modern track ties got smushed, while the postwar track held up fine
