Deferred maintenance

Picking up on the weed-grown tracks theme of yesterday’s blog entry, the ballasted track on the Resurrección module looked odd alongside the overgrown line on Jones River. So I’ve added some grass, covering most of the siding and part of the main but the area next to the station platform has been left clear, as if it is regularly walked over.

The result is that the scenery blends better on the two united modules, Jones River and Resurrección (below, left and right) both having overgrown track, while Frog Rock (bottom right)  has neatly ballasted track and the line through Rio Paleta (bottom left) is buried in the sand.

One common feature throughout is that the sleepers are hidden from view. Thus enabling the use of HO scale track on the On30 scale layout.
