The latest update shows the areas of clutter sorted into small vignettes along the layout.

I know it's far too late to change it, but to be quite honest the combination of overhead shots and a lack of a horizon of any sort in the backdrop is really detracting from an otherwise amazing piece.

Is it meant to be photographed/viewed at a lower angle than these in-progress shots?

The whole project is/was a test piece to see if this scale/gauge combination works - as such most of the materials were scrounged or donated for free and this is why the size of the base and backboard was decided upon. If I was to build a proper working and landscaped model railway along similar lines, I would make a number of changes - a bigger (and curved back scene) being just one.

"Is it meant to be photographed/viewed at a lower angle than these in-progress shots?"

It is intended to be views at just below eye level.

Thank you for the comments.

Interesting question.....

The models and layout were built to test the scale/gauge combination and as such any further additions or modules were not part of the plan.

Now that the test piece is nearing completion I am already looking at what will be my next Narrow Gauge project. At this moment it looks like a completely new layout rather than adding to this diorama layout. Although that could change!!!!!

If my Wife agrees.....
