Looking for the adhesive back ones for railway modelling in n-gauge. Never purchased before.
Does anyone know the best search terms for these and if there are proper (technical) names for them?

    They have a few names on the various supplier sites - brick paper, building paper, texture sheets - doesn't seem to be a "proper" name for them.

    I don't know but try browsing the model railway magazines at the newsagents.

    Try different terms that you can think of and see if it brings up what you want on Google Images, then see what they actually call it and what sites it takes you to.

    Try e-bay - there are a lot of miniature/model railway sellers on there.
