Misc Updates


I’ve had little time for trains lately for a number of reasons but the biggest is the arrival of this little guy.


Baby David and his mother are doing well and I’ve been trying to explain trains to him but he hasn’t quite picked it up. Oh well, he’s only a couple days old 🙂

Before this guy showed up I did do a test on my bridge project, I tested a paint for dirt color. When I was at the hobby store looking at paints my middle child (Jacob) said this one looked like dirt and at the store I agreed. For my test I painted a section and sprinkled some woodland scenic grass on half of it.


Looking up close in person I like the look with the grass but I’m afraid the where I didn’t do the grass looks too chocolately… now I’m not planning on doing any bare dirt sections and this would be right on a small river so it would likely be rich soil. I’m just not entirely sure yet. Maybe the better answer of the question will be how well I can transition it to the water line.

I’m also going to be experimenting with some static grass, I just had this arrive today


I got this basically for free (Amazon gift cards), I’m not sure how exactly I’m going to this yet but I’ve wanted to try static grass and this way I’m not invested much if I don’t end up using it.
