7.2.1 ~ I n  B e t w e e n  G r a s s



A small project for this weekend: filling the gaps!

I I found this part between the railway tracks too large a gravel surface somewhere.

Just like on the other side of the platform, I also decided to provide this part with grass.


 I had to scrape off some gravel form the first layer. 



First "dry" testing how it would look like. 


Too straight the edge seems unnatural to me. Besides, I need room for the smaller vegatation at the side 





... and while I am working on the smaller vegetation, weeds and tares are 'growing' into the fence in the front.



The reverent  or "der Hochwürden" (Preiser 28105) is enjoying the view in a quiet spot at the head of the platform, waiting for the next train to arrive.




7.2.2 ~ The Right Hand Corner



After a couple of weeks of silence, (and too much working on the website behiond my computer), I decided to do a little foresting today.

Focussing on the right hand corner in the front, I worked with little bushes and weeds. The final positioning of the trees will come later.

Besides, I'm still waiting for two boxes of dry grass (Busch 1301) which I will use for some variety in the front.


Now let the pictures tell a tale of some 4 hours of tinkering with pleasure...


Today I will only focus on the area between forest lake and track.








One might for a moment compare the situation as it was in 2002...




But now, at the end of 2020... it's a change!










7.2.3 ~ W o r k i n g  o n  W e e d s



With four days of vacation in view, today I devoted myself to replenishing weeds. There are still several spots that can use some leaf foliage.

But before that, I noticed another annoyance: the uncoupler track and hideous screw. They had to be removed first.







New foliage and weeds across the track and between the fence at the right





Between the two tracks as well as around and on the track bumpers new weeds were brought in
