Grassy banks

 I'm sort of happier now. There's green stuff.

Sooty and stained  brickwork and a blast of green. One of the reasons for the abandonment of the Mk1 N gauge plan was the lack, at the time, of static grass at Peco HQ; along with small radius points, Setrack and just about everything else that I needed. The abundance of Peco static grass on Squires stand at the weekend suggested that this is now not the case, and just in case it wasn't, I grabbed a bag of 2mm Winter Grass.

I'm working from the back, forward. This is good practice and this piece of dull retaining wall is about as exciting as it is going to get. I'm at the point where I have a layout kit with lots of built structures and just need to sort all the walling to tie it together.


  1. The ground cover has come out nicely, suitably lumpy and uncared for like most of these odd bits of railway land that are "just there". Looking at that sort of thing at the moment as I'm bowling up the ECML...lots of similar walls as you leave London.

  2. Looks good. The rest should be "interesting"!
