    Ive searched and found bits and pieces, but here is what i need:
    Step by step ballasting instructions, with pictures.
    Step by step ground cover (grass, bushes, lichen, etc) with pictures.
    Ive got trees and buildings down pat, although i wish i could weather my buildings better.

    Thanks and happy modeling!

    Too bad this wasn’t posted a few nights ago. I just finished laying ground turf on the Passenger Station Diorama and I could have taken some progress pictures. :cry:

    I have some ballasting coming up in a few weeks. I’ll make sure I take more pictures.

    I can give you instructions on how I do them but right now without pictures. The only pictures I have are before and after shots.

    MR put out that intro to trains magazine a while back - it may still be on shelves. Good pics in it, plus there is a decent DVD as well.
