It's way too tidy BB. Why can't you work in a mess like the rest of us?
Looks good and the back scenes are fine.

I did move a lot of "stuff" before taking the pictures.

This corner is where the main line curves into the storage/fiddle yard. As a scenic break, I'm thinking of building a hill with tunnel, so that the main line enters the tunnel, and exits just before or even at the points that lead to the storage yard. I didn't really want an additional board the hid this from view. Any ideas?

looking great BB, but as steve says too tidy, it's no fun not rummaging around the clutter to find a tool or something you need

A tunnel is a good idea BB but only as long as the whole train can disappear inside before it emerges again.

Points are a bit close for a long tunnel, may be just a embankment/hill to hide the corner.

Looking good...

Looks like plenty of space, being un-cluttered!

Forgive me for butting in, but American layouts don't typically use backdrops near to the degree that our British cousins do. I find do find your backdrops most compelling, but I
am also getting an education in "vanishing points." From my tawdry perspective: well
done. As work on my own British OO layout progresses, I hope to liberally plagiarize
the work I see here.

Hope to see more of this in due course, BB. It's looking good!
