Model Train Snowy Carpet/Mat to Cover Platform?
so, being that its christmas once in a while, i'm starting to pull my trains out to set them up under the trees. i run four different sets of trains, and i've constructed a rather large dunderpated platform to put the trains and the tree on. I used to cover up to platform with a white bedsheet (to look like snow) but its very awakward to bollix up the track down on a bedsheet.

Explore: Metchosin lays out welcome mat, Pacific culture on show
Metchosin Day is a community celebration that proudly shows off its rural roots.
The event has evolved since 1967, when it began as an annual community barbecue. It now attracts close to 5,000 people — almost the population of the municipality.
“Metchosin Day shows off what Metchosin is all about,” says Mary Gidney, volunteer co-ordinator for Sunday’s event. “We are proud to invite our neighbours to our free country fair. Even the parking is free.”
The day-long celebration has something for everyone.
The day starts with a 5km walk or run, followed by a pancake breakfast.
Entertainment consists of music from country to blues.
There is a pet contest and traditional children’s games such as three-legged and egg-and-spoon races. This year there will be races that include grandparents as partners.
The riding ring features equestrian events, including Woof and Hoof, a dog and horse show. There are also hay rides for 25 cents.
And food abounds. Scouts Canada will be selling hot dogs and hamburgers, while other food vendors will be offering ribs, goose sausages and corn on the cob. The food can be washed down with a glass of wine, beer or cider.
The highlight of the day is the lamb and salmon barbecue dinner. Volunteers start stoking the coals at 5 a.m. for the 5 p.m. dinner. Only 400 tickets at $15 are available — and they typically sell out by 4 p.m. After dinner, people can buy slices of prize-winning homemade pies.
There will be more than 110 vendors on the grounds, featuring attractions ranging from sheep shearing to local jewelry.
The event runs 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Metchosin municipal grounds (behind the fire hall on Happy Valley Road).
