Re: Wanted: Chooch sugar beet loads - HO scale

Anise seeds are very aromatic.  I’ve had a jar of them “off-gassing” for years, and I can still smell them.  I believe they would have to be sealed some way - perhaps with liquid floor wax or several coats of Dullcoat.  I haven’t tried any method yet.

A friend used Anise seeds for a beet train, and after a few months the cars were infested with bugs. If you use Anise seeds, you better treat them to discourage bugs. Perhaps run them through an alcohol dehydration series, or treat them with something repellent or toxic to bugs.
