Hello, I've been away for the weekend so have only just seen this question.

I use hardboard for my backscenes. It's cheap and fairly easy to bend if you want it to go round corners. Very thin plywood could be used instead. If you are working in OO then a backscene must be 12" high at the very least, and 18" or even 24" is much better. (I even read about one modeller who says that backscenes should go up to the ceiling!) If you are working in N gauge then obviously scale down those figures.

I suggest that backscene fastened to the baseboard would be better especially if it is for a permanent layout.

Hope this helps. Cheers, Robert.
