This is the first in a series of scenery details I’d like to consider. They add realism to the layout and also provide simple but effective small projects to make building the layout fun.
The first one is a drainage pipe outlet into a ditch. This can be installed on a flat-board layout as the styrofoam can be cut out to allow for the cut-out or on an open-frame layout. Note the effective use of model foliage and rocks around the ditch.
