Well, my mom finally agreed that when she gets tax returns she will get me layyout supplys like benchwork, track, scenery stuff, ect. I am modeling this isn winter and will use the fake snow on the ground and put down baking soda on the track. I will have a "sweep" under each snow plow and or Rotary Snow plow. The "sweep" will pick up the repaining snow left o the track as so not to short out locomotives. I may need help when I get started and i also will take suggestions from some here. This is modeling my fictional rail road MNT, I will at some point paint up some engines in MNT. I will have at least a 6 track tard sokme where and have a mainline in an oval and have a frozen lake with skaters and ice houses on it.
