Is there an alternative for water on model railroad layouts?

Question by AJ: Is there an alternative for water on model railroad layouts?
I have a bridge that has nothing that goes under and need to add a small creek that goes through it. And I don’t really have the money to get the Woodland Scenics water right now. I just want to know of an inexpensive way to make a creek/river that looks realistic. Thanks, AJ.

Try a bottle of Future floor wax. It’s 100% clear acrylic. You can dab it into the creekbed with a brush and it cleans up with Windex. Add more layers as needed, and very inexpensive. I use it as a clear sealer on my models before applying decals. If it dulls over time you can just add another coat.
