I had to pull the layout away from the wall to work on the backdrop so I decided to take a couple of pics I can't normally take as the wall would be in my way. In the first pic the camera is in the alleyway between the mainstreet buildings and the furniture company. Just a guy getting back from lunch. Parked the car and is now walking into Allison's Feed.



The shipping dock is inside the building at the furniture company, don't want snow or rain to get on all that new product don't you know! Here a worker realizes his break is about over as he looks up and sees a boxcar being pushed inside.

Mike, I love the old cars (especially the woody) in the first picture, and that second photo is just outstanding.

Thanks guys! Bruce my time period is the early 60's, hence those cars. You would rarely see anything newer than 7-8 years old around these parts.

O.K. I got the other panel in place so this is my temporary permanent backdrop, or is it my permanent temporary backdrop? John you asked if these pics had been taken in this area. When I called the company (Realistic Backdrops) I asked. They are located in Pittsburgh and the pics where taken in that area.

Mike,

Those are the same backdrops that I used, and they nicely represent any of the mountains here in northern NJ, northeastern PA, and southern NY.

Mike, those are really a couple of excellent photos you posted above. As Bruce and John have already said, the second one is excellent! I love the camera angle, the framing, and the undulating siding track in the scene. Now, that's one worth submitting to Walthers N Scale or to MR's "Trackside Photos." Something to think about....

Those scenes are really brought to a whole new level with those backdrops. Keep up the good work!

Bruce you are right they work pretty good for anywhere in the eastern mountains. Thanks MikeC, don't know as they are that good but I think I'm making progress.Mike (Cigarguy) thank you, I agree that nice backdrops can make a real difference.

I also use those same backdrops. They make a whole series of them and as I understand it, they are all scenes from the Pittsburgh area. Great quality photograph backdrops that are perfect for the northeast. There are about 3 hillside backdrops that can overlap and be used repeatedly without noticing any repitition.

Tyson,
The backdrops look good.
They actually frame the layout quite well, add depth and also draw your eyes into the scene.

Thanks for the information on the backdrops.
While I enjoy making the 3-dimensional mountains I have a couple of walls that will be getting backdrops soon.
However, I do need taller mountains for Alaska.
