If this works, this should be my first pic of my layout I have ever shown in public. The photo was taken with an 18 Mil lens so the room is somewhat distorted in appearance. The back of the room looks about 4 feet wide, but is 7 feet wide. On the far right hand corner of the photo, you will see the wall starts juting in (for another 2 1/2 feet becoming 9 1/2 wide) into my nolix area. The idea of this photo is to show the Faller's backdrop I used, two different scenes that fits right into the BC landscape here in Canada, but of course, is really somewhere in Europe. In the bottom scene, I have the backdrop - on hardboard - standing out from the wall about 4 inches; on the top, the backdrop, still on hard board is attached to the walls directly. Also the L brackets you see on the wall jutting out are home made jobbies I did with rather thick MDF. So the layout pictured here is larger than it looks, but its still in a small room. The piece on the left that will house a reversing loop is 10 feet long; in the pic it looks about 6 feet long.
