The purpose of this book is to help you add scenery to your model railroad. Your trains can run without scenery, your switches can work without it, but there is no realism without scenery. The setting and background that you create can give your trains a geographic location, a seasonal orientation, and a time era.
The principal idea we want to convey is that realistic scenery is within the scope of any model railroader, even those who do not consider themselves particularly talented in artistic fields. Lack of ideas on how to begin and fear of how complicated the job might be have left many otherwise excellent railroads in the "trains run, no scenery" category.
No matter what stage your railroad is in, you will find this book helpful. We begin with some general ideas on layout building, go on to planning scenery, and then move to specifics with the Woodland Scenics Terrain and Landscape Systems. Not only are the systems easy to use, but the products have been created to coordinate with and complement each other, producing realism without an artist doing the work.
We suggest that you read the entire book before you begin. The Scenery Manual will give you an overview of all of the ideas and products that make up the Woodland Scenics system, and allow you to select those which will be most useful for your particular situation. Then experiment. Because of the way the products have been formulated, it is almost impossible to make mistakes that are not easily correctable. We think you will be pleased with the results, as well as with your own creativity.
Even though the emphasis of this book is on model railroading, many other types of modelers will find the techniques and products described here as very useful. Whether you are a military modeler, a diorama builder, an architectural model maker, a dollhouse builder, or have a project for school, this book can help you. The basic techniques of creating terrain, covering it with landscape materials, and finishing it with details can be used by any kind of model builder. When you learn and practice these techniques, you can use them for any type of model you choose to build.
