You can have a 50s era layout with a dude ranch and tourist
type wild west town along the tracks at some point while
there are industries and other typical layout features
in other parts. The good thing about that time in our
country is that railroads did so many more things than
they do now. Passenger trains, small busineses that
use rail freight, icing platforms for reefers, coal to fuel
homes and busineses. And, yes, even tourist attractions.

You probably should have started a new thread with your question.

Can you clarify what you mean by panels? Dispatcher panels, backdrops, layout surfaces, or something else?
