A Pond?

The hole you see here
Pond being dug
will be a pond in the rear of the layout. Once I scrape together enough money for the materials, I’ll cut the concrete roadbed you see at the back of this image and remove it, replacing the on-the-ground track there with a bridge.

Still not much actual “garden” in the train area. You’ll notice that the weeds are doing fine, though 🙂

Garden RR Progress

Here are two additional bits of progress.

The first is the pad for my factory and warehouse. I’ll put the buildings out once it’s dry, possibly tomorrow.

And here’s a dirt/gravel road idea I’ve been wanting to try:
Gravel road

That’s two pieces of plastic door trim, painted with exterior paint to protect from UV, buried in the soil. Then I dug out between them and added rough sand to serve as gravel. I hope that these edges will help keep the sand in place so the road doesn’t disappear in the first rain.
