Here's a pic of my FT yard from a year ago - just simple black cinder with an ice station, yard tower, yard lights, a couple tufts of grass and some trash and oil drum piles.

I'll take a few pics tonight of the transformation over the past year and post tomorrow. It's substantial.

A closeup:



I like the effect but the stuff collects dust, to which I am allergic. I'm probably going to put down drywall [adhesive] tape and a layer of Sculptamold. Then paint.

I have two yards... first, my freight yard (forgive the mess - a lot of work started in this area which I really need to get back to finishing):


Second is my engine yard just after I finished with the scenicing and before the engines moved in:

Here is the FT yard a year later with more people and scenes. The biggest addition was the crane and workhouse, but I also added a station, passenger and loading platforms, two lighted engine sheds, junk yard, a couple of out-buildings, signage and trucks.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

I am happy I stumbled upon this forum. I am also looking at ideas for my new layout with about 6-8 sidings using Fastrack. I am also looking for lots of new or used tracks to start saving for the new layout.

Richie C. I especially like that Number 3  in the bottom right hand corner...Other than my Dad, Dale was my only other hero.
