Operating the Wetterau Food Services Micro Layout

I have created a new model railroad video series on YouTube, and my first video features operations on the Wetterau Food Services Micro Layout. The video is long (17 minutes), but it illustrates the operating potential of a micro layout.

Wetterau Food Services Micro Layout Part 7

Basic Backdrop Painting and Static Grass

Posts here have been few, but work progresses this summer!

I painted the backdrop sections a basic sky color for now.  The plan is to add a photo backdrop to the scene as well as painting a few background trees and clouds...nothing fancy.



The next step was to begin adding another layer of texture to the scenery base.  I used a homemade static grass applicator and a static grass blend from Noch for this step of the scenery process.  More textures will be added before calling this scene complete.



















Now it's time to clean the track and run some trains!  Hey, I have already done this!! A video of my recent operating session will be the subject of the next WFS Micro Layout Update.

That's all for now!!
