Just that you can see the fiddle yard area through that opening in the backscene.  Putting a building 'flat' adjacent to the opening (up against that concrete building in the corner), would help to hide it.  Wouldn't hide it completely, obviously, but sometimes having a bit of scenery, just into the fiddle yard area, helps to disguise the transition.  Naturally, this is also dependant on viewing angles.  My idea would only be helpful from certain angles -  if you can see right into the fiddle yard area from a wider angle, it probably isn't worth it (otherwise the whole fiddle would need scenery (and nobody wants to do that!).

 

Got what you mean, it's not a fiddle yard, it just a track to push my grain cars on, there will always be a grain car there blocking most of the view and  i had a planned for an half sheeted wall coming of the canopy, like the photo, but have run out of supplies

more testing!!

 

 

 

As someone just getting started, I do find these really inspirational - I doubt I’ll ever get anywhere near this standard when it comes to trackwork, scenery or weathering, but it does encourage me to press on with layout plans for what I can do.  Thank you.

A more compacted layout that fits in the car, EOTS needed van hire my main decision to scrap it.

 

Aye, I worked out some time ago that if the layout does not fit,
along with all the other "mission-critical exhibition gear",
in the Subie Outback (IE requires a trailer or van hire),
then it's too big...

 

Can't wait to see where the journey takes you...

When i  retired ,i no longer needed a larger car, so down sized to medium hatchback,  neither of the two older exhibition layouts would fit and with the extra cost of van hire, made them a tad expensive to invite for a smallish layout.

Any new build's, will be made to fit the new car like Franklin falls.
