Associate editor Cody Grivno starts off 2018 down in the Model Railroader workshop where he demonstrates how to apply static grass scenery to a model railroad. He uses the new Peco static grass applicator and scenery products. You'll also see a selection of new HO and N scale locomotives and rolling stock.
