A 3 in 1 post:
Somebody here awhile back was looking for something to use as brambles
in their layout. Don't recall if there were any responses but I saw some
stuff called Excelsior (spelling?) at Michael's craft shop that might
work. It comes in different earthy colors and has a very thin twisted,
corkscrewy (word?) look to it. There's some other stuff similar called
Spanish Moss but it looks more fragile (hard to tell though as it's in
bags). If spread out, it might also work for pumpkin patch vines. -Oh,
and by the way, Michael's does stock the electric tealights. They are a
GE brand and $3 each (also a bit taller than the cheaper ones).
Second; I bought a Walthers HO catalog mostly for ideas and I can use a
few things in there for On30 (and they're just fun to look through too).
A German company called Busch makes some incredibly nice scenery items
including an individually stalked cornfield -but it being HO, the stalks
are only 1" tall -too small for O scale. Anybody know of a source for
Third; I thought Walthers listed about everything available for model
trains but realized last night that Athearn is left out. Why is that,
and are there other big companies left out too?
