Where most model railroaders just put up telephone poles and leave it at that, but I strung'm up using thread! I used weeds found around the neighborhood as trees and spray painted them. I built lobster boats by carving them with a grinder out of rigid insulation then used paper plates to build the superstructure. The windows were from packaging material from those plastic packages that are always hard to open! White mini Christmas lights for the buildings interior and flat wooden coffee stirrers to build a bridge and a dock! And a bunch of other repurposed stuff.
So now I have to clear a path to the layout, carefully dust it, remove the cob webs and figure out the best way to clean the tracks.
Dust covers the steam locomotive.
