    Shawn it looks like your an old pro at scenery already, the potential is really great for what you have planned. One big tip for the future water its not going to be "BLUE". Keep your eyes open and look at nature is the best way to represent realism, if you have a camera w./ all the time if you see something you like take some shots of it for later recall. I see what looks like a bunch of kits or rolling stock on the shelf just like all of us, the to do shelf we call it around here. What are you stowing up there?? Good luck and keep up the good work, Pat

    Hope to be as talented as you

    I just joined and was looking for information to build a series of mountains with flatlands for the railroad and department 56 buildings. What did you use for the mountain? Is it hollow all the way through so I could put cords down into it? Will flat ares support the weight of sevearl buildings?

    How do I get started?
