Collection: Backdrops

Having a great backdrop adds a tremendous amount of depth and realism to your model railroad layout.  I would recommend installing your backdrop very early in the process of developing your layout.  It's much more difficult to add it later after the layout is mostly completed. (Don't ask me how I know this!)

These are some of the best backdrops I've found at reasonable prices.  They are easy to put up just using double-sided tape.  It would be good to have an extra set of hands available as well.  

After you have put up your backdrop, bring your matching scenery right up to the base of the backdrop so it's hard to tell where your scenery stops and the backdrop starts. 

You spend a lot of time building scenery, and laying track.  Why not add a backdrop (which takes a lot less time) to enhance the scenery and add a beautiful, realistic environment within which your trains can live and operate for years to come?
