Rob’s been busy getting his model railroad backdrop just right:
I created a mural for the back of my layout earlier on in the build of my Colorado and North Western.
But I was not happy with it and had the intention to create or improve it and then have it reprinted.
I worked on the new version of the model railroad backdrop/backscene off and on for a number of weeks. When I arrived at what I thought would be a better picture, I had it printed.
It really turned out well and this time I am very happy with it. I did have to adjust it slightly after I got it back from the printer and the method I used is demonstrated in the video.
I am including a real photo of Longs Peak which figures prominently on my backdrop. I though some folks would enjoy seeing what It really looks like (first picture below).
The backdrop is not a photo, it is an original creation by me.
I have included a photo of my Hiway Cafe’ because it relates to the backdrop. There is a miniature version of the back scene along the wall in the cafe’ behind the counter. It is very hard to see, but it is there none-the-less.
A huge thanks to Hall of Fame member, Rob.
It’s wonderful to see a layout come to life, especially one like this.
