Back in December when the holiday season was starting up, I decided to start covering my HO-scale 11x8 model railroad layout with "snow" for the upcoming winter. I had a stroke of genius in devising a way to come up with snow... using 1/4" Styrofoam sheets cut to fit parts of the layout and decorated with Woodland Scenics "snow" material!




The Christmas train, pulled by my Bachmann Spectrum ATSF 2-8-0, makes its' way through the snowy landscape!















Of course, any "snow" that comes loose I vacuum up so it doesn't get into my trains' motors! And then when spring arrives, I can remove the styrofoam snow sections and store them until next winter!
Pretty cool landscaping technique, huh?

I posted them here. I can't use Photobucket anymore because you have to pay steep fees to use it and for your existing photos to be unblurred.
Also, here is a YouTube video showing the progress...

I was able to see them there. That was a good idea. It worked.
