I have a new diorama project of mnodelling the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway station, Bratton Fleming after a snow fall. In the UK, snow is rarely modelled and does indeed present challenges.



the original station in the thirties with the passing loop removed



the station building after snow treatment (microballoon). Note the 'dunny'



the over bridge



the goods shed

The diorama will be set up for night and day operation and the trains are being fitted with sound (no mean feat in 009)

Convincing looking snow on the buildings!

Now to keep it clean--

Is the stock to have snow on it too? I did that once years ago for an around the Christmas tree layout, and it was years before I got the last of the snow off the tram car. I did use some spray snow (which may not even be available anymore) and it stuck better than glue.

Hi

Yes, the stock will be snow bound too and will remain so. Initially, two of the locos from County Gate will be used and no way will they have snow! Spray snow is still used and gives excellent results on trees....anyone who sprayed snow on rolling stock deserves the death penalty!;)

One of the things I like about outdoor large scale... the elements are real with no replicating necessary. :)

No skill in that....for me the art is realism of modelling!

John-here's a photo of some very realistic snow on the Mogollon Railway...



It wasn't sprayed on but it was pretty easy to get rid of!

            Just for a laugh....      Woodie

Gee John, thanks a bunch! It was a long time ago, and I was young and foolish.


Now I'm just foolish.

Work continues apace and the baseboards are now complete and finished in navy blue. The fiddle yard is still to be built.
