Long ago I learned that a small layout can benefit from a sky backdrop. And the easiest way to make them was with posters. For the White River & Northern VIII, I decided to be "authentic" and searched for images of the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Roughly the lower quarter of the posters will be covered by the scenery along the back of the layout, so the foregrounds were unimportant.

I'll mount the posters on each side of two Foamcore sky boards, and make clamps to hold one in place on the back of the layout, so I can pop in the scene that suits my mood.
