A Railroad For The Urban Table

You may recall the urban table I made for Trumpeters Salute 2018 (see here). The plan was always to be able to replace the canal with a rail way. To that end I bought some Sarissa Precision MDF track and a signal. I raised the track using some cork and blended it into the foam with some Spackle.

After sanding down the Spackle, I lay down a mix of floor adhesive and sanded grout, sticking the shrubs directly to this mix as well as the first layer of 2mm static grass:

To blend into to the rural side of the tracks I used a mix of Peco Scene's 4mm Spring and 6mm Summer static grasses
The shrubs are a mix of Woodland Scenics clump foliage and my home made bushes using static grass and Scenic Express SuperLeaf foliage.

Although we will probably use the hedges next time we use these tables (some time in November) I would like to find some appropriate fencing to line the border between the town and the tracks.



    Now we need a TRAIN?

    1. The track is Sarissa Precision MDF; as such I suspect that only their cars will fit on it. Shouldn't be too much of a hassle to get a few though.

  2. Brilliant thanks for SHARING I often see wargames with great figures buildings and scenery and the railway almost thrown down ad an after thought...

  3. Great looking board! Agree with Murdock, we need a train 😀

  4. Thank you guys for the compliments.
