A good backdrop makes all the difference in a realistic looking scene or a toy like one IMHO Here are some before and after photos of the PNs first photo backdrop. Thanks to my son, Neil, Mike Confalone and Mike Rose for their help and input. Also Tom Johnson as well as the 3 above guys for the inspiration. Also to Roland Morin and John Brietmaier for help installing it.

Took this photo last summer while the wife and I were sailing on the newly launched schooner ARDELE in Gloucester harbor. The FRANK LANDON is overtaking us in a light breeze. Both boats built in the Harold Burnham yard in Essex. Love it, love it, love it.

Rick you are right about Dickís Hoosac Valley and itís backdrop. The photo backdrop at Berkshire Junction yard was the first time I can remember seeing a photo backdrop. I was in the mid 80s and the first time I had seen the HV in person. Credit for this belongs to Jim Smith a long time friend and Adams native. Jim has passed sometime ago, but his legacy lives on on Dickís layout.
Greg Grahamís layout is gorgeous thanks for sharing. Those structures are beautiful.
Andy the detail on that car shop makes it look real.
Carl that Tannery would make Mr. Sellious envious.
, John is that boat going to appear in HO on your layout.
Here are a few photos of John Taylorís (Jr. and Sr.) Old Colony and Ohio RR
