Ash puddles

Here’s a neat little tip from Sam for making puddles in and around ash pits.

Over to Sam:

“Hi Andy,

I was at a heritage railway a few weeks ago and noticed puddles of water where the ash from the engines was emptied. I thought it would be fun to make this on my OO layout.

I didn’t have any of that fancy fake water but instead used some kitchen film, the stuff you wrap sandwiches in.

I tore a bit off the roll, stuck it down with some wood glue and then pilled some tiny black scatter coal stuff, I think from Jarvis, around the edges. It looks really good.  I’ll send a photo over shortly but thought you’d like the tip.”

I can’t wait to see the photo Sam!
