    Here a good question:

    Since I am modeling the Rock Island, a midwestern US railroad. How do I simulate the corn fields of the midwest? Any ideas?

    Andy!

    Cornfields?

    ASTROTURF!

    Get an astroturf doormat. Cut a piece to the desired shape and thin out the "corn" into rows. Apply to layout deck.

    Thanks George:

    Now what about fall corn? Also what about those corn bails you see in the fall that are used as decorations?

    Any more ideas?
