    Metro train arrived! Disconnected my DCC unit and let it loop around the layout on a 9v battery. Kato's run so nice.

    Will your laser cutter make hand rails in brass to the level of photo etching or is that more of a milling machine/photo etch thing?

    Some lasers can, mine cant. Cardboard though can support a lot of detail

    For example, the .5mm thick railing here is just cut into cheap ol' poster board.

    Prepping the area a little with a coat of black paint and a sealer, which has already made it look much more watery. I'll be cutting a better looking seawall as well as adding some rocks and gravel and coast line stuff before I actually start on the water.



    I'm going to be using this toilet paper based water method this time!

    I don't know about the yard goat, but that photo literally looks like you're standing under an overpass.

    Haven't had a chance to really work on the layout all work week but hope to this weekend, specially since I have monday off. Here's a nice angle in the morning sun though.

    Some of you may remember months ago I made a test track to test out various methods of making "grass track", track totally embedded in nothing but green rather than concrete. All my attempts failed, horribly. But for some reason I decided to just go ahead on the real deal and hope for the best. As I've be re-fining my past scenery skills I felt enough confidence to just go for it.



    Everything is wet and swampy, but tomorrow when it's 100% dry I'm going to attempt to strategically place glue down and then dare to add static grass. I had a bunch of static grass accidentally grow on a section of track on my last layout and after mowing the flange gap the train actually ran over it just fine. Here's hoping.
