Hi Kev,

If you use hd foam score the ruts with a craft knife, spray with a rattle can of the desired color, instant ruts as the solvent attacks the scores faster than the smooth surface. Same principle for ploughed fields.

I just recently did this track. The base is real sand, laid to the total width of the road, with a bead of glue run along the middle and some Woodland Scenics turf added. The grass on the railway side is a mix of Woodland Scenics colours and textures (coarse and fine) - soil mix, earth blend, green blend, medium green and also a little fine ballast. 

The tall grass and weeds is from a Mininatur grass mat (pasture with weeds).
