Greetings from West Hartford, Connecticut, USA.
I have to tell you that the information you pass on to us is so helpful in creating our own “word of trains.”
A question: I’m almost positive that I saw about a year ago in one of your emails an article on using dryer lint to help in the making of scenery. I was going to print it out but never did. If it did come from you, would it be possible to send it out again? I’ve been thinking about it and why not use a handful of lint mixed with some green dye or very diluted green water base paint and sprinkled with some ground foam and you might have a decent looking shrub.
Thanks again for all the helpful information you send out.
Here’s a tip: I’m putting down G gauge track for my garden railroad. I’ve found that ¼” crushed gravel, not pea gravel, makes an excellent underlayment for the roadbed. But for ballast on top of that, I’m going to use #3 poultry grit! It’s just the right size, shape, and color, and it’s cheaper than dirt: $12.00 for a 50# bag at your local feed store.
“Not stunning, but I always keep a pot of sawdust going; it’s really useful for scatter material and can be glued in small clumps around the bases of walls etc, dabbed with a few different greens and yellows, and becomes weeds/foliage/whatever.

A nice tip from David – works really well I thought.
Keep ’em coming.
