You could try pouring some Milk or Yoghurt onto those White Chipping's, will speed up the greening process.A dry day today so got some more track laid , got another set of secondhand points this week off Fleabay at the Right price so got my three lines started that will form my Main Station. The two tracks too the Left will have a platform between them and the bit of wood will be replaced with the main platform and station building, then I can have a foot bridge over my line from one platform to the other .

Finished cementing the Rocks around around my dry River bed or what ever it is meant to be LOL added a couple more Alpine Plants, Decided the white looking chippings are going and will be replaced with Gravel, they might go greenish one day but they are just to White...

View from where my Main Station will end, still need to finished infilling the Bed with rubble and build protection around the Acer so the rubble doesn't damage it's trunk as it will be staying. Had a problem getting my rubble from the bottom of the Garden today...got chased off and stung by bees or wasps no idea which they were, but they dam hurt when then sting you. Not sure I am going back for the rest they seem to have made a nest in what I want and are not going to let me have it without a fight ROFL, might have to buy some to finish building the mole differences in the last 12 foot of border.

I do have 2 spare lengths of 1200mm that go at the other end of my layout, but as you say it's a shame to cut one, knowing my luck if I did I would be 120mm short then at the other end then just been searching LGB do a 150mm track, so will have to order one this week to cut to fill the gap, Might have a look on Fleabay later to see if there is one on there.
Why not look out for some cheap 300mm straights (or curves) to cut up?
I look at the LGB set piece shorts and think they are expensive - but that's me (short arms and deep pocket man)!
