If you need easy background structures, go to this site.


These are actual buildings from mainstreets in IL. You can print them out for free! They print out at HO scale so they can be instant background or ready plans for scratch building. If you try these, post a quick note here how they turned out.

I remember seeing this linked on a blog ages ago and I couldn't find it since - thanks for "finding" it for me! :)

Some of those could be made in plastic.. well for those who have the knack of making plastic. :)

Years ago on the back of all Model Railroader mags was a building to cut out & paste on cardboard or thin wood to use on your layout. They were all printed in color. I still have most of them someplace. Most were small along the rail buildings, nothing like what that web site has. That is real nice of those people to do that for free, considering there are other web sites that charge you for about the same thing.

Very very nice, several of them will form "ideas" for O scale buildings that I am doing for a "big city" corner
