I've been focusing my scenery efforts on specific areas of the layout. The purpose is to try out some new techniques in a smaller area so its not too overwhelming!
These photos show the work I've been doing on an area that extends from the edge of the city along the backdrop to a road bridge that crosses over two of the lines and then meanders off to other regions of the layout.
Noch 57218 "HO Cobblestone Streets". The texture is actually pretty nice and looks pretty good. I also like the fact that the material is self-adhesive!
