Model railroad urban backdrop:
A huge big thanks to Ken for sharing his model railroad urban backdrop ‘how to’.
Now onto Richard:
I love reading your emails and get a lot of ideas from them. I am struggling to start my layout ,returning to the hobby after 40 + years.
I have a loft space 20ft x 5ft to build a layout and have a couple of “train sets” including the hornby elink / railmaster control.
I have installed DCC into 4 of my old stock and bought a new Castle loco with TTS sound. My problem is I can’t decide on a track layout !!.
My Dad was an engine fireman/driver in Wolverhampton (Stafford Road and Oxley) all his career and my plan is to run all the engines he may have worked on so quite a challenge. Any suggestions would be greatly received
In the meantime I have been making buildings( putting of the inevitable I guess).
I then thought I could do something similar. I photographed the shops in Tettenhall village and turned them into my own creations (see the pics) I am quite pleased with the results.
My creations are the ones at the front of the picture. and a large photo of the Limes court building.
Keep up the great work
Don’t forget the ebay cheat sheet. Latest one is here.
