Brymbo – Progress report – June 2016

We have been continuing to apply static grass to boards 1 and 2 and also ballasting the track. For ballast on the main line at the rear of the layout we have been using coarse grey ballast and for the other track both standard and narrow gauge, within the works and sidings, we have been using Woodland Scenics coarse cinders. This has been stuck down using 50/50 PVA/ water mix applied with a dropper, after spraying with wet water. It is the intention to add red and yellow scatter, obtained from WWS, to simulate clumps of wild flowers within the grass. We have found that odd bits of static grass between the rails gives an overgrown appearance as you would see in yards and sidings. Some pictures taken during the last month show progress on the layout.
