Bill’s been back in touch with his N scale mountain update:
Over the last weeks I’ve continued to work on the mountain that anchors one end of my N Scale mountain layout.
Since my last post I’ve gotten the top removable section of the mountain completed and have planted a forest on its sides. This was a fun endeavor for me as I really enjoy the scenery building that comes with making a model railroad.
In addition to working on the mountain I’ve also done additional small projects on the layout including weathering one of the engine houses and adding more trees to other areas.
As the weather starts to cool off I’ll start to make a number of automobile kits I have and paint and weather those. I also have a growing pile of people to add to the layout as I get areas farther along.
Always fun things to do!
The video shows rock construction of the lift off top and the second covers adding in ground cover and foliage.

A huge thanks to Bill – stunning stuff. Can’t wait for his next one.
It’s quite a story he’s putting together with this N scale mountain – I do love the way he works, from adding wax paper to the existing scenery, to working out what part of the mountain will have trees, and what part will just have bushes.
It’s satisfying to see an update like this without any seam between the two mountains – that’s the great thing about plants and any kind of green. As Bill said – he had lots and lots of trees at the ready…
I did enjoy seeing the finished mountains on the bottom in the video – and the plaster on the new top mountain. It really shows the step by step by process, and Bill’s mountains really do look fab.
It’s hard to see the seam in the mountain before he gets busy with the ground cover and trees to hide it. Impressive stuff.
If you’re looking for his last post, it’s here.
Or if N scale is your thing, here’s quite a few N scale layouts for you.
There are lots of posts on mountains on the blog. For some reason, I always think of Glyn’s mountain layout.
That’s all for this time folks – please do keep ’em coming.
Don’t forget to send in your mountains pics, whatever scale you’re working in. We’d all love to see them.
