Although no one has said anything I've never been that happy with the back scenes on Brettell Road. Back scenes are a bit of a quandary as you dont want them to be naff but then you dont really want the viewers of a layout to notice them either. They kind of need to be there but not there at the same time. Initially I used a combination of brush painting and car aerosols to do them but with hindsight and a sprinkling of self reflection I probably didn't put in the time and effort I should have.
I downloaded some textures from scalescenes and set to work on photoshop. I could have rendered my own textures but given what scalescenes charge it really not worth anyones time to do this in my opinion. Here are some images before and after.

Layout Announcement No.22
Boscawen Junction (N Gauge)
Boscawen Junction is a fictional layout based on the Cornish mainline. It draws inspiration from the Parkandillack Branch where it joins the mainline at Burngullow and also from Chacewater where there was a Blue Circle cement depot and disused station.

Full details of the show can be found on the website www.somersetrmc.org.uk/Rail-EX/index.html

Passing the loading gauge on Polbrook Gurney Colliery. I used code 55 rail here for that lightweight industrial look. Filing the point switch blades takes moments with such fine profile rail. Note one of my ‘budget’ yard lamps. Bbq skewer, bent nail with a slice of plastic tube. 5 mins work. Bamboo blinds make an inexpensive source of fine bamboo otherwise, the lean-to was made from such. Scale OO 1/76.

Top tip for real scrooges, pop around to your neighbours later today and ask if you can have their used Bbq sticks... errrmmm, maybe pass on that one. Old bbq ash is good for loco yards though.
