Hi Cameron,

The 'pub end' of the layout I have attached a sheet of plywood (3 ply) directly to the back scene frame and the baseboard. In the pic below, you can see where I left a 3mm gap between the MDF concrete and the plywood end. This allowed the foam core/printed end scene to drop down below ground level and not sit above it.

Further in the post is a drawing of the set up.



You are correct in saying that the bridge end scene is screwed to the bridge. It was not glued to the back scene in the corner, but I disguised the join by gluing green foliage (Poplar tree) to the back scene board. Note that the picture of the Poplar tree extends past the top of the scene.



Here you can see the plywood secured to the frame of the back scene and the baseboard. A thin white line can be seen just above the top of the black plywood which is the 3mm foam core scene.



A drawing of how it all goes together. The blue on the ends of the diagram is the 3mm foam core. The black line on the left diagram is the plywood.



Hope this helps !

Cheers, Gary.

Well it looks like Industry Lane will be on the road again in a few weeks time. Another exhibition has been booked in for the layout, just waiting approval. Now I just need to do a few repairs, a tidy up and put the sound decoders into the Class 33 and Class 128 Parcel Van... ;)

Cheers, Gary.

I will not have a lot of room at the Castle Hill exhibition, only about 3.5 x 2.5m. It was a late call and I'm guessing I'm just a filler for the event. If approved, I'll be taking the tv and P1MRC video (USB) along with a small card table and fliers, not a lot really. The P1MRC banner will hang from the front of the layout. The vertical banner will miss out this time round...
The Hills Model Railway Society have some very strict rules on power leads and anything that is 240 volts.. In a matter of fact, they asked if I have Public Liability Insurance...

Cheers, Gary.

EDIT* I have applied for two positions only over the weekend. Myself and....

Most home contents insurance will cover you for PLI while exhibiting as long as you don't get paid but  reimbursement of expenses is allowed though.

Dear Gary,
i really like the way you have merged three elements into one backscene image, most impressive. This is very difficult to achieve, and you have done extremely well,
Congratulations,
Best wishes and regards,
Echidna
