A bit more work-in-progress completing the "tunnel corner", mainly filling the gap between running lines and scenery.

And spent a bit of time provisionally repositioning buildings for that crowded urban look.

Turning away from the hills, by happy chance I found a backscene for the rear side of the layout which is more-or-less what I've been looking for, i.e. a vast swathe of Japanese outer-urban landscape which looks pretty much like that of the main station's intended location in the far west of the urban area where it sweeps up against the mountains.

I'll tell you what, your backdrop fits perfectly with the foreground. It really does look like a city scene.

Well done!

That's exactly the view I had from the Shinkansen on my way to meet up with you!

Triple thumbs up!

I know it's not that along ago, but your layout is already bringing back memories!  :thumbsup: :beers:

A rather blurry ride through a very untidy layout, just in case anyone has got the impression from carefully angled photos that it's anything like complete ...

That reminds me (in light of recent seismic events), I must improve the lateral security of that shelf full of green Kato book cases directly above the layout, the plastic stringy stuff will probably prove ineffective in preventing them from plunging onto the layout should the wrong kind of earthquake occur.

Those IKEA shelves (or ones exactly like them) did actually withstand the 2011 earthquake very well, despite not being secured to anything other than the floor by gravity, and none of the books etc. present on them at the time actually fell off, but that was only a 5-/5+ on the Japanese scale of Earthquake Shakiness, which goes exponentially all the way up to 7.
