Bon French's layout is centered on the area around Cheyenne Wyoming. The photos in this set are showing the Cheyenne depot area on the layout to illustrate the use of photo backgrounds in creating realism on a layout. It is a photo supplement to the Rhinelander Railroad Association newsletter story coming in The Warrant for April 2012.

Here is an overall shot of the Cheyenne area of the layout the main UP depot and the space for the yards in the foreground.

This shot is from across the layout and gives and view of the depot and town.
