Working the turnout bed early this morning. Ground will be brown wherever it shows. Shavings and sawdust saved to process into ground cover.

Now that I am further from the turnout and scenery, I can start using my power router. The job just got a whole lot easier.

Created spur line roadbed near the turnout, painted the ground brown, added Walton shale to the roadbed.

Before I pour the water, I'll add some real Nova Scotia materials I collected and processed myself. Shale from Walton, reindeer lichen from Cheverie Mountain, and beach grass from Cheverie on the Mina's Basin.

Today I'll be able to rout my way through the mining area kindling for the roadbed. Some of the water will wick it's way into the ground cover but when it dries I add more ground cover where needed.
