Got it mate!!

I'm using Townscenes too, but like the look of HP's collection.

Townscenes do an excellent woodscene backdrop, which I've used in front of some of their others so that you can see through the woods to glimpses of more distant scenesand buildings beyond. Quite effective.

It's a novel and interesting way of doing the job Owen and for those who absolutely cannot paint a backscene I see it as one of the viable alternatives. Come to think even as an addition to a painted backscene. I like it a lot.

Owen,
I like the idea of a 'wall of trees',and I think I might borrow this idea and use it on my next layout.Nice one,Owen.
For the record,mate,I preferred the second one because it had more variation in the colour!

Cheers,John.B.

 I also prefer No 2 Owen, as it seems to have a bit more depth and colour to it
