Sleepers and rail laid

  • More progress on the new module with the addition of sleepers rail and ash ballast. The next goal is to start on the landscape itself not much to add but for telegraph poles, fencing, static grass and a small dam and a few trees so enough there to keep me out of trouble for a while, I have made a purchase not that I make many but the new platform end cars in the varnished colour scheme from SDS Models with my brother in law, two for me and three for him.

All for now

    Your model is beautiful. Wondering what grasses are you using?

      Hi Simon
      Thank you for the comment you posted regarding the static grass I use . The range is from MiniNatur which is available at Model Railroa Craftsman Blacktown .There are many colours to chose from so it is up to you wether a semi drought landscape or more of green one, biege and yellowgreen mixed together is a good start. The glue is Woodland scenics scenic and scenic cement there are many how to videos on youtube so pick the type of scenery you want and don’t be confused over the colours available. I hope tha has helepd you and goodluck with your project.
      Peter
