I think this layout has had many videos of it. I really love the layout. I am pretty sure it has a moving bus through the town section.

I love the sound of the trains. How is that done?

I think he has recorded a lot of trains and then just choreographed the model motion to match the recorded sound.

I'd say that that's an inspirational layout all right.

I’m a big fan of Yukikazeful’s videos. I think the layout is relatively compact but it shows you what you can do with limited space. It is also very evocative of Japan in the Showa era with a good amount of foliage that often gets overlooked on layouts of a country with a tropical climate.

His channel has a track plan video posted some years ago and I think he used Peco track, which is an interesting choice in Japan for something not easily available here. All of his videos are great viewing and I particular like the coaling tower around the engine shed area when he does a video of steam engines.

Thankyou. Can you imagine if you could get models that sound like that.

This layout uses Tomix track and is based on a Tomix track plan as seen in part 01.

Nice Alpine based layout that I came across today when trawling for ideas, he uses a modular scenery system akin to ala "Squid" and seems to be working on future extension of the layout.

This video shows how shooting a video at the correct angle and excellent background can make an excellent diorama video:

MichiK - thanks for posting that blog.  I have been searching for blogs that show building and scenery work (as opposed to those that just show rolling stock) and really like this one.  I am at the point on my current project where I am working on detailing the station and nearby buildings and this is a great resource.  I am not coming close to the same results but certainly something to aim for.

Cheers,

Tony Galiani

Wow! this is the next level of detail - to think that hours of work go into mini projects like this, sometimes never to be seen or noticed!

That's beautiful. I've worked in signal boxes that weren't as neatly laid out. 
 

Layout's nice too - and it's HO. 👍

 

Cheers,

 

Mark.
