One of the features of the layout that has attracted a great deal of interest is the backscene. This is a digitally printed image 14ft x 2ft. In the March 2013 Railway Modeller theres a how to article if you’re interested in gettting rid of square corners, joint lines made by ‘The Bachmann Trencher’ and square holes to let the trains in and out.
The image was kindly supplied by Chris Nevard http://nevardmedia.blogspot.co.uk/ and after a bit of trial and error with John, our tame printer, a really good result was obtained and a huge amount learnt. That which was learnt is already being put into practise on a number of layouts, including one which will really break some presentation boundaries.
