God is in the details. This old mantra stands especially true for model railroading, which is largely dependent upon the amount of effort and patience you are willing to show a layout. If you take the time to add small details that give touches of realism to your scenes, those scenes are going to come to life and grab and hold a viewer’s attention. With that in mind, we spend some time in this lesson teaching you how to take your new scene to the next level, paying close attention to the details and adding simple model railroad stuff that will make layouts truly pop!
