This video series, hosted by Michael Gross, will teach you the simple "how-to" workshop techniques you need to know to take an HO scale electric train set and make it a scenic model railroad.

We'll show you how to build a 4x8 model train table (benchwork) from plywood, lay sections of track, create easy realistic scenery using foam and paint, assemble model buildings, and wire your layout with a DC power pack.

When you're done, you'll have a railroad that operates well and looks real. Our techniques would work in N, O, S, G, or Z scale also. This video is scene 7, Scenery part 1 how-to.
