I don't call it dust or fluff, in my house it's called 'added natural scenics'

This made me laugh out loud. I then had to explain myself to SWMBO...

My (Our) layout DALESGATE has been designed to be a mobile exhibition unit and measures 66" x 30" and has back scenes on either end with Perspex at front to keep little fingers off, we use a thin waterproof material (from Pennine Outdoors) shaped and stitched by SWMBO and having an elasticated lower edge with cutouts for the lifting handles; upper sharpish edges of the layout are protected with 15mm pipe insulation and the cover fits snugly over the top, when not in use the cover is always on which also helps to keep dust out.

I use a goat's hair artists brush for keyboards hi-fi etc. It's very soft indeed. Canned air is good too. If the floor is wood instead of carpet, static electricity is reduced. I learned that from frustrating times combatting against statically attracted dust on my LPs

Very neat Jim, and what a charming little layout.

My daughters old make-up brushes work a treat. I also (when safe to do so) use an air duster. However, these can cause more problems than they solve so I'm careful where and when I use it.

I was thinking about dust and using vacuum cleaner and thinking about a past 00 layout.. And then a thought of model railway items getting sucked up... Then the thought came to me... So glad I didn't get anything in T scale!
