I feel a bit guilty starting a new thread about this, but I've just come out of the local newsagent, and they have the January 2024 Railway Modeller sitting on the shelf.

It boasts a free photographic backscene, but of course it's in a sealed bag. I assume it'll be scaled to OO, knowing the flavour of the mag.

Has anyone got one? Could it be used with N? It's only because I thought about buying it  ;)

hi George

The backscene will be fine if you intend to use it or just admire it. They are designed for many scales.

I've got them and I think they will be fine for 'N' gauge.  I might use one for the micro layout I'm building.  I arranged the dimensions of the layout accordingly.

All the very best.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

I binned it 'cos it's full of creases and I didn't fancy ironing it ::)
If I buy a printed backscene it has to be rolled up like the iD ones are.

I'm not that fussy, Mick ;)  ;D 

You could have sent it to me if you didn't want it  ;D

I have found it very useful. I will be using mine as a backscene to a Swiss layout (!) in conjunction with a portion of an ID backscene that is mostly conifer trees (and is also actually in the UK!

As for the folds, they are hardly a problem IMO, as many layout backdrops are split across baseboards anyway
