Concrete pads and curbs

Harlem Station had a tremendous amount of paved surfaces. According to prototype pictures, it was all concrete and no asphalt. I tried to localize joints in pictures but couldn't The paved area date back to the late 20s. I find it odd there's no joint. I would at least expect one at each 12 feet increments.

Paved area are done with 2 mm thick cardboard, curb with 1.5mm styrene strips cemented with CA glue. It was time consuming, but I like the result a lot.

The next big challenge is painting the concrete. It will take a lot of masking tape to protect the tracks from the spray. I'm still evaluating my options.
