Modelling Tip Of The Day – 50

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller. Today’s tip is:

Real Coal

Add real coal to your locomotive tenders, wagons, coal yards etc. If you have a coal burning fire use some of the small pieces as material for your layout. Preferably the small pieces of pulverised coal are best. Otherwise, place a lump of coal in a bag & bash with a hammer to break it down to a suitable size. Use a sieve to grade the coal for use on your layout. Alternatively if visiting a preserved steam railway, worth asking if they can let you have a piece of coal but be sure to offer a donation to the railway as a way of thanks.
