I have a HO mat that is supposed to represent field grass. However it's too tall for a N scale pasture as you can see by the cow on the left. The cow on the right had her field shaved with a electric razor to give the grass a more realistic height. Not sure what this will do to the long term life of my razor but as we all know the layout is far more important then the razor is!

Hi Mike;
You can buy replacement cutter heads for most electric razors for quite a bit less than a whole new razor. You could have one the cuter head you already used on the layout for the layout and a new one for your face.

This is the type that you use for trimming breads and mustatches, not for actually shaving. You can buy them new for $20 and this one is at least 10 years old Jon so no real loss if it does mess it up.

I think it might be visually interesting if you leave some patches of tall grass.

Jon I agree, it's a pasture not a lawn.

Jon beat me to it.I was just going to suggest that you leave some long like maybe next to the fence the farmer installed to keep the cows from becoming railkill.

You have heard the expression "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" ? Cows must believe it as the grass under and just on the other side of the fence seems to be the grass they eat first.

Are you considering barbed wire? It seems like I remember some new products for it.

Really great to see you back at the layout, I like the idea you have of building in sections, got me thinking.
I bet it feels good being back at the layout as well as playing with the photography, I've learned so much with my new camera.

Thanks Lynn and yes it's great to be back at work on it. The reason for building in sections is so if I ever move it will too and I won't have to take a chain saw to it.

Working on the ridge in the middle of the section. It's 3 inches high but only about 1.5 inches deep so a problem to scenic and get any depth to it.
