Thanks for all the kind comments...

Some observations after completing this project...foam rocks are very effective and fast to complete. Literally took 10 minutes to build and add rocks to this module. I use a hot glue gun to affix them to the layout.

I’m glad I added scenery before the snow was applied. There are 2 stages were I doubt how the layout will turnout (satisfactory to me), 1) after the foam work is done, and 2) when scenery is first applied. I think this is due to impatience. I really enjoy the finishing work of scenery (bushes, trees) as opposed to adding the base scenery. The one thing about a small layout is the fact that you can take it outside, and spray scenic glue without worrying about making a mess.

I also used grey ballast. I typically gravitate towards dark ballast (black, or brown).

What’s next? I have two ideas that I think will be very interesting to the MTF...they are in the planning stages.....

I’ve put the layout in “storage”. The only side project I have is making “barren” trees (leafless trees). Also I plan on removing trees from my Burlington Northern layout for the winter layout, and repopulate the BN layout with better trees...It fits fairly well under the BN layout, but I move out when operating it...cheers
