Adding dirt to the surface

Here I am adding dirt from the actual location to my scenery. I am simply mixing 50/50 white glue and water and brushing it onto the surface. I then sift on the dirt and vacuum up any excess. We use a small portable shop vac just for this type of work and reclaim the dirt to reuse again.

Palisades, Nevada

Here I am continuing to work on the Palisades canyon portion of the layout. The river will be the final detail to complete this area.
I will have to wait for all the track and electrical work to be complete before this can be done.
