Main module I didn’t keep any images of The Depot module construction so instead I’ve added those belonging to the Town. I made several refinements but the underlying concept is the same: a removable backdrop that sits upon a base: I’m often asked what the purpose of the cutout well is. It has no real purpose other than being a presentation feature. I first saw the concept on an Tasmanian layout featured on the Micro Layouts website. I thought it was a great presentation device. The cutout well allows me to view trains close to the edge of the baseboard as I think they look really good when up against the edge. It also softens the look of a rigid rectangular design and helps emphasize the flow of the trackwork.
