    Thank you! [​IMG] My layout has not changed in a year. I also have a N-scale layout and Onetrak module. My money and time are not endless. :(

    For the rocks, I use this clay: http://www.yorkshireartstore.co.uk/clay.htm
    It is very ease to use. I also use it for streets, and for the soil. And water! My rivers are entirely made of clay. :D
