    Welcome to Trainboard. [​IMG]

    I think you should contact Trainboard member Jon Grant in the UK. He did winter snow scenes on his HO layout.

    Stay cool and run steam.... [​IMG] :cool: :cool:

    The 1999 Layout Planner from Model Railroader had a decent article on winter scenery. I too am planning a portion of my layout to be in the constant deep freeze.

    Here is one of Jon Grant's photo's of his winter scene on his layout:

    He uses household emulsion to create the effects.

    in the December, 2000 issue of MODEL RAILROADER there was an article telling how they "winterized" one of their project railroads. About all I remember is, for a frozen pond they used a peice of white styrene and coated it with a few layers of Acrylic Gloss Medium. And, ther was an exellent "how to" article in MODEL RAILROADER back in 1998 by a guy named Rand Hood showing how he built winter scenery-even little things like sheets of ice beside the rails, and fish trapped beneath the ice in a frozen pond.

    Matt:

    Send an e-mail to Jon.

    He used houselhold emulsion to create the snow scene.

    That's white latex paint here in the good old USA.
