  • I've been working on scenery in the exposed staging yard, the first part of the layout to get scenery. The process has been as follows: (1) a base layer of screened granite paver base (in retrospect, I should have used a finer screen.) Then Az Rock 'yard mix' for ballast on the yard tracks, and a dusting of Az Rock fine cinder to tone down the granite. I added some fine and coarse Woodland Scenics, but I think the granite is still too light/visible. The look I'm going for is "reasonably well maintained but heavily used yard." The final step, when I think the coloring is right, will be some static grass between the rails.

    Comments/suggestions very much welcome!

    • Needs a little dirtying up. Other than that it looks great.

      • I sprayed A&I over part of the area. Of course, that blew away all the unanchored Woodland Scenics foam :-) But it did tone things down, so that tells me "A&I first" :-) :-)

        • It looks like much-used track.
