Chris Chianelli takes the viewer to the Rocky Mountains to introduce this episode. And what better backdrop is there than the Rocky Mountains? It's a classic backdrop that's modeled on countless model train layouts.
Chris then takes the viewer to San Diego for a close look at the San Diego model Railroad Museum. This N scale layout feaqtures some of the most realistic backdrops found anywhere.
A special guest joins Chris in the workshop later to demonstrate how to paint a realistic backdrop using stencils, spray paint, and acrylic paints.
