Adding Scenery

I've been procrastinating doing scenery because it's not my favorite thing to do on a layout. Actually doing the scenery doesn't bother me as much as the preparation of the area.
I picked a small area to begin with. Adding grass first and then various trees.

You're off to a nice start, Spence.

With your various vehicles, including some "fleets" of vehicles," you can create some really neat scenes as you progress.

Thumbs up

And Autumn is in the air, love the colors.
Autumn is my favorite time of year. Then comes spring.

Maybe you need a few more color trees mixed in with the green trees?

Looking good Spence. Nice fall colors on the trees.

Adding scenery is a lot of fun. You make me realize I am falling behind in getting to the areas of my layout where I must revise it.

Spence, great start. Grass and trees really make a layout come to life. The hardest part is usually getting started. I have a special cart that I setup with most of my scenery materials on it that I wheel around to where I am working that helps me a lot. Saves so many trips back and forth and is easy to wheel out of the way if I have company over unexpectedly when I am still working on a section.

I will log that idea for the future. And I'll have the cart to roll away under the layout.

Thx.

When you think about rusty rails, you think of yours Spence! They look REALLY rusty.

Looks great, Spence!

The addition of scenery, especially trees and shrubbery soften the lines of the layout, making it more pleasing to the eye.

Scenery was always my favorite thing to do. I just need a layout to start on! Lol.
