I just wanted to let
you know I just received my background and LOVE IT!
The quality and durability far exceeded my expectations.
I had expected a magazine glossy type material, but was surprised
to see that it is actually composed of a very HIGH QUALITY
wallpaper/vinyl type material(?). I had better read your website to
find what it actually is composed of.
In fact, I took the plunge and actually mounted it on the wall of
my train room using "T Pins" just to see what it looked
I did this by myself, which I do not recommend, but it just goes
to show how it stood up against my brutal mounting.
The durability was very high, as it DID NOT rip, tear or
otherwise get damaged by the pins. I even gave it a "tug
test", and it did not rip.
I also trimmed the background to fit on the wall of my layout.
The trimming was easy and I was able to trim it using an exacto
The background stood up to the abuse of putting it up by
"myself", taking it down, moving it into another room to
trim, and back up again.
Even my nickel and quarter size drops of sweat (nervous) on the
"back" did not damage it, although while it was wet it did
dimple a little, but nothing permanent.
Folds and light creases during this process had minimal lasting
I purchased the Manhatten skyline and will send you pictures
shortly of the construction of my New York Central O Gauge layout.
I definitely plan on buying more!
All the best! Vince 01170343
