Terrace House Backscenes (8).JPG

Urban backscenes have been relatively neglected for model railway layouts. These backscene sections produced by Sankey Scenics provide a useful and relatively inexpensive way of creating an urban backdrop for your model railway. The ‘Urban Scenes’ backscene elements have been digitally drawn and have been designed to give some flexibility to the modeller so that unique backdrops can been created.

Simply cut out & glue to your backscene to create a completely unique scene. These can be used in conjunction with existing backscenes and can provide very useful infills between low relief buildings and other areas. Printed to a high resolution on quality matt coated papers, these flat one-dimensional pieces of artwork can give the sense of a three-dimensional scene.
