If you’re tired of spending your hard-earned money or your kids’ inheritance on your layout scenery, look no further than Mother Nature for an easy and inexpensive method of making model railway bushes! While they say “money doesn’t grow on trees,” lichen or fungus do – and they can be transformed into very realistic bushes which won’t cost you a thing, according to Model Railroad Academy’s Allen Keller.

In this brief video clip of alternatives to purchasing expensive, manufactured items for your layout, Allen collects tree lichen that, with a little bit of green rattle-can spray paint and white glue, can quickly, easily and inexpensively be transformed into model railway bushes that will be look great on barren spots along your right of way.

Don’t need to spend a lot of money bringing your railroad fantasy world to life – just look around you in Nature for quick and cheap ways to create model railway bushes, trees or ground cover that look like the real thing.
