“Hi Al, I have been using foam scenery for years. If you wish to make a mountain or a river, you just add foam sheet or cut away foam sheet. I also use foam in a can as can be seen in the photo below. Once it is set, I then carve it or sand it to what I want and them paint and add greenery.
Another reason to use foam, easy to cut out for building placement.”

When buying a used DCC Locomotive, try to find out the DCC Decoder address is. It makes it a lot easier to either use that address or re-program.
Thank you so very much for publishing my musings in your newsletter recently. The response has been overwhelming. It has really inspired me. I got my new camera a few days ago and this is the first I have had a chance to try it out. It is very compact, but so far I am very happy with the results. It is much better and more convenient than the mobile phone camera I was using before.
I have spent a good deal of time working on my layout, Farland Howe, the GWER, and developed a couple of ideas some of your readers may enjoy. I have not done the promised color palette mixing video yet, it is coming soon, but for now see what you think, From the very beginning of building the GWER, I have tried many means to make reasonable hedges, affordable, fast and convincing. I think I have stumbled onto a technique that fills the bill. I also developed a means for tunnel entrance liners to give the tunnel entrance a more realistic look. This is not for the whole length, just at the ends where people can readily see it.
A good modeling to you,
Thanks to everyone. Please keep ’em coming.
