A Few Details

The challenge in adding lineside details to a layout is that, if not handled carefully, they have a tendency to look contrived. To get around this I’ll study prototype photos of scene similar to what I’m working with and just copy what I see. Case in point being the large grassy areas near the yard and car float. Actual photos show rows of spare rail, piles of ties, 55 gallon drums, and a fair amount of wind blown trash.
