As always I appreciate your work and your wonderful site.
Everyday I enjoy reading of others modeling work and see the great variety of model railroads you post.
This weekend I spent some time working on one scene on the second module of my 4×16 switching layout.
I have all my filler ties back in on my track and all ties and rails painted so it’s time to start adding ballast and scenery.
I’ve attached a few pictures of what I’ve accomplished today and a link to a video showing the scene in more detail. I look forward to hiding pink foam board at the soonest across the whole layout.
For this scene I painted the side walls in the foam with acrylic earth tone paints then added 50/50 white glue and worked it in with a brush.
Next was I added earth toned ground cover and then foam. I soaked the foam with 50/50 white glue and sprinkled on ground cover to build up depth and layers on the foam.
The coal is real and after setting in place I added more 50/50 white glue to hold the piles together. It was a fun little project and I still have much more detailing to do but that will be another day.

A huge thanks to Bill.
I do love it when I see his name pop up in my inbox.
He seems to have had a lot of fun with this part of his layout. What a project!
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming. And don’t forget the the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to get going on your layout.
