    Those are some very nice trees, they look so real.

    Maybe outside the scope of this article but is there a tutorial or explanation somewhere of how to do this for the first time? The pictures are great but I would ask...
    1. What kind of wire is best?
    2. What is the flocking?
    3. What kind of glue?
    4. What kind of paint?

    Thicken your bark color with dust-like sand particles.
    Don't worry if during the drying process little parts fall off, makes it only more realistic!

    Oh that’s great. I’m covered now. And it takes what? A minute or two per tree? LOL Thank you.

    Here the right module ends, and the left one needs to attach perfectly - let's see how good we can get that done, it is always a challenge!!!

    I received several questions regarding the Western Maryland rolling stock.

    Indeed, most of it is custom painted by Stephan M. Koenig.

    This is the whole train, safely stored........
