    I’ve gotten a little more done on the layout since I visited here last…

    I’ve actually got scenery at both ends now!



    That last shot is the most recently completed…here’s what it looked like just a few days ago…

    Drew, the photos look great! How are you creating the ground cover?

    Thanks for the nice comments, guys! :)

    I use a bunch of different stuff for ground cover…A lot of it is natural…sifted dirt, ground up leaves, small twigs…I also use broken up bits of plaster that I paint to look like loose rock, & lately, I’ve started mixing wood ash with sifted dirt, & using that for ballast…I use bailing twine (jute) to make tall grass, & of coarse, there’s plenty of Woodland Scenics ground foam in there, too

    Love that little kettle smokin' & steamin' its way over that gorgeous trestle, but I bet that dude on the flat car is in violation of OSHA rules regarding proper operation of a RR...!!!

    Here's another shot of the same area...this time the climax is waiting to push a load of logs up the line to the storage pond...
    I'm wanting to build a lumber shed in the area to the right where the siding is...

    Great stuff Drew! The trees look great. I especially like the deadwood sticking up through the greenery - something you see in real life, but not often modelled for some reason. The ground cover is outstanding :thumb:

    Nice work Drew I like the grass in between the track we have some abandon track that looks just like that. If I hade the room on my layout for abandon track I would love to copy that.
