Trackside 3D's Railwayside Terrace series is designed to help you create a model railway scene depicting row of terraced houses running alongside the railway. A common sight throughout many urban and suburban parts of Britain. The Railwayside Terrace series works for a wide range of eras from early steam to present day. Trackside 3D recommends ID Backscenes Series 401 Terraced Backs which runs 3 meters long by 15 inches high to create the perfect scene.
The original inspiration for the Railwayside Terrace series is a stretch of railway line that ran parallel with Selby Street in Hull. There are numerous photographs available on-line depicting steam locomotives from the 1960s and diesel locomotives as late as the 1980s. This double-track section of railway lime, along with the close proximity of the houses to the line, makes it a great choice for the railway modeller.
Low Relief Housing System (Rear)
Trackside 3D provides a 3D printable low relief housing system that allows you to mix and match to create an accurate but unique scene. The low relief house rear/back is available in a number of variations, from open plan to a six room version. The low relief houses are designed to be placed along the backscene or edge of the layout. The houses fit into the base system which can be stacked to form a row of houses. The base system is designed to be installed left to right. Special chimney stack/pots with a stack attachment are designed to help connect the low relief houses together. Below you can find the instructions for printing and assembling the Low Relief House Backs/Rear.

ID Backscene Series 401 Terraced Backs works very well with the Railwayside Terrace series. The backscene runs 3 meters long by 15 inches high. We recommend mounting the backscene between 3cm and 5cm above the baseboard when placing the low relief housing system on the backscene. The low relief housing system does work with the backscene flush against the baseboard, but you get a better effect by raising it a few cm. We use this backscene with the Railwayside Terrace series on the oorail layout.
