I shaped the front of the layout with a large wire wheel on an electric drill at a slow speed. It sliced throught the foam like butter but left a rough surface. Then I thinned some joint compound and brushed it on.
The nice thing about a small layout is that you can just take it outside to dry!
It was 66 degrees at noon today. Three days ago it was 16!

I'm not sure I ever answered this. I scratch built the first boxcar and then made a mold and cast some more. It might have been just as easy to build them one by one.
