What did you use as ground cover?

 

Mainly Tamiya 3mm foam board, as it brings the ground up to a plausible height when "embedding" Tomix rails.

Experimenting with ballasting in the train depot:

It occurred to me to try rubbing down the firmly dried ballast with some sandpaper, which smooths it down quite nicely and the residue transferred from the sandpaper adds some "weathering":

Still needs some tidying up but I am quite pleased with the effect.

HHmmm... something tells me I am seeing more different trains on Takahachikawa's tracks... I wonder if it is just me …   😛

The chopstick construction is starting to disappear behind scenery, and the main tunnel portal now is fixed in place...

The view the other way is slightly more complete:

Got tired of messing with the train depot area so went for another round of hide-the-plywood:

It's great to see Takahachikawa evolve bit by bit ~ 🙂

 

I see you have a couple of real estate space below the viaduct ~  😛

Got tired of messing about with ballast and stuff so went for a break in the hills.

Always nice to take a break and head up to the mountains even if just on the layout...

If you can shrink youself to 1:150 of your current size, it can be arranged 😉

 

The road up from the town (just visible in the shot above) is becoming a little safer with the addition of crash barriers:
