    Looking back now, I am impressed at the greys, reds and other colors of dirt that was present in the Pease river breaks.
    I think your efforts look great Paul.

    Thanks, Tom. It's fun, and my wife's help has been instrumental. My color vision is terrible!!!

    ...however, this module looks really good, too.

    Your earlier post regarding colors looked interesting. It sounds simpler than the acrylic method I'm currently using and worth checking into!

    Think of it this way: Most of the "bare ground" on most layouts is eventually covered to a large degree by some sort of green ground cover/static grass/trees. The brown underneath is just background.

    Great tips, thanks. I wanted my first layout of 60 yr ago to be west Texas but back then there was no way to get that kind of information and living in the humid green Deep South, I could not observe first hand.

    I recognize the building at the end of the spur. The one I fixed up for the club disappeared into history several years ago.
