Realistic Scenery for Toy Train Layouts By Dave Frary Techniques to improve the realism of your toy train layout.  Soft Cover 1996.   96 pages.  
Toy train operators have come to appreciate the dramatic impact that realistic scenery can add to layouts of any size, scale, or gauge. Considering the deluge of well-detailed semi-scale locomotives and cars manufactured today, it's understandable why you want more than a coat of green paint as your layout scenery! What you really want is believable scenery that's just as intriguing as the toy trains that run around the layout.
Some layout operators mistakenly think that they must purchase every commercial scenery product available to create realistic scenery. Those who do concoct scenery this way are usually discouraged by the amount of money they spend to achieve only mediocre results. But for most operators who create it methodically, using common products and materials, scenery is typically the least expensive and most rewarding component of any layout.
Layout scenery doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive, but it must be effective and easy to build. Simple, effective scenery can provide some ingenious ways to disguise exposed benchwork or wires, switch machines, track actuators, signals, and other unrealistic elements inherent to toy trains. And as a functional part of your layout, scenery also helps to protect your treasured toy trains by keeping them from falling to the floor if they derail.
In the pages that follow, you'll discover numerous proven, easy-to-follow scenery techniques developed by one of the best craftsmen in the hobby of model railroading. As you work your way through these steps you'll also learn that you really don't have to be an artist to produce satisfying results. Then you'll know you're well on your way to building some truly impressive and original scenery for your toy train layout!
