Scenery Behind the Track

The corner of the layout farthest from the door will be primarily scenic.


The area can be generally defined as where there is enough space behind the track to develop the scenery to any extent. The white cardstock in the photo extends about 6 feet or so in either direction out of the southeast corner. Beyond it the roadbed swerves really close to the backdrop on the right and left.

The cardstock will be used to create a pattern for cutting Masonite for the back profile of the scenery.
