Since that damned Groundhog lied about an early Spring and the temps dropped along with some snow, I found some time this weekend to get more of the scenery base down.
Most of what I did this time was primarily to use the Scenic Express Turf blend to cover the majority of the section and added small amounts of Woodland Scenics fine Earth along the ballast shoulder. I also added more crushed leaves where I plan to have groupings of trees. I also sprinkled on some varying colors, but this was mostly around the tracks and the ballast.
I still want to come back and get some color between the sidings to help define the ballast edges.
Hopefully in this shot you can see how I've tried to make the elevator tracks look ratty.
I think the next step will be to dig out and apply some static grasses? After that.....maybe some trees and bushes...
