Hill Ho on the network

Maybe you want to build a Ho hill, an N mountain, an O lake, and a hollow on your network?
The principle remains the same ... The structure must be strong enough to be removed if necessary, in order to access a track to clean it or repair electrical wiring.
This is the case here on the network ...
This hill Ho will serve to camouflage the angle and will play the role, by the [...]

The network façade will allow to delimit the space and to materialize the positive and negative reliefs.
How to fix this network façade?
First, the support rails of the facade (above the underground station) are put in place on the frames of the modules. [...]

So let's be more precise, because even if this way may seem a little more complicated, with the method and patience we get there ... the proof!
That said, to make a river you have several other possibilities:

leds lighting

LED lighting simple to achieve. That's what I'm proposing today.
I need to make one for lighting along the underground station of the network. I have to fix it inside to have an indirect light that will not attack the eye.
I will stick my LED ribbons on 2 wooden cleats which will be ... fixed (screwed) on the inside front (lighting towards the bottom)

Background scenery

The backdrop ... we do not know, by which side to take ...
Some will do it in blue with bomb clouds (which I did at first) ...
Others will stick a photographic backdrop, bought in the trade or make it by printing on special paper.
Background decoration with paint ...

Peco needles, how to wire them well

The network was previously equipped with Peco insulfrog needles, needles for the circulation of fast trains (tractors or railcars that sometimes run at speed, scale, a TGV as can be seen on some videos ).
In our case, few tracks = network of maneuvers, which imply speeds sometimes very slow ... 
The problem with the Peco insulfrog needles (which do not have polarization of the heart [...]

I was looking for a building that could fit easily into the Particular Branch of the station of St Antonin ... After reflection ... I ended up finding with this agricultural cooperative produced in kit (resin and metal) by ABE 44 (Belle Epoque workshop ).

A very green hill.

Realization of our hill (often called the mountain ... but its altitude is not dizzying). It was painted, the white dry brush was made to bring out the edges and the first thin end flockings were made (Woodlands Scénics).

We must now bring some greenery to all this. I start by asking some fir trees (small or medium size +, 4 where [...]

Ho city comes to life

The city HO comes alive, the buildings are quite easy to do, be careful not to put too much glue (This is also stated in the instructions ... photo film pot and small brush) thicknesses sometimes at least make that the cartons sometimes tend to curl. I use wood glue for a quicker grip.
