Ensuring realism when building model train scenery is a hugely important component of any well designed train table. Whether you’re building an N scale layout, HO model railroad layout or some other gauge all together different, your hobby railway will be an extremely boring and lifeless eye sore without well built model railroad scenery.
Minus the trees, bushes, mountains, buildings, roadways, lamp posts, billboards, and other model train scenery and structures; your train table would be just a bunch of locomotives, freight cars, and passenger cars running around on top of a piece of plywood. I'm sure most serious hobbyists would agree that without scenery and all the other trimmings, your layout is just kinda dead.
Fortunately for you, options for buying and making model railway scenery are quite plentiful. There are a number of scenery manufacturers from which to choose. One of the most popular is Woodland Scenics. They have everything, and then some, to make your model train layout come alive. Another great provider for model train scenery kits and supplies is Scenic Express.
