This is the narrowist part of my layout on a shelf section in a bedroom. It's barely wide enough for two tracks but there was room for a backdrop industry that was made out of leftover scraps.

More backdrop buildings please.

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!
