    I found this picture that I took in 1995 of the layout using baking soda for the snow. Enjoy!!

    Scott, That's a nice looking snow scene photo.
    My question is, since baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, about 7%salt and the powder is very fine, what was the result of running your trains in the powder, seems it would cause problems with motors, trucks, wheels, gears and the track eventually.

    That's some collection of motor power too!

    Great shot!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I too am curious as to the affects to your trains from the baking soda.

    Beautiful snow scene, Scott! :cool: :thumb:

    (I'm guessing that you only used the baking soda to stage the photo, & then vacumed it up before actually running the trains...?)
