That brickwork is "Faller" # 222559 (intended for N scale, but actually just right for TT )

Brickwork - you can make it by gouging bristol board like I did below. The dimensions are exact for TT scale -2.1mmx0.9mm and a 0.1 mm mortar layer. But this is only for rather small detailed areas IMHO. Honestly, the plotter wouldnt mind- it just takes some time to finish. That particular specimen was made on a Portrait. I used it to simulate old, partially crumbling work. The three-dimensional surface comes out when you rub off the fuzz left from gouging with an abrasive sponge
