2 HO layouts from the JAM convention

The latest RM Modeler magazine has a report on the JAM convention, and I noticed something that may interest HO modelers- a full size operational HO scale layout.  This blog has some pictures:



It replicates the Choshi Dentetsu in Chiba Pref. namely the area around the Yamasa Soy Sauce Plant.  It's a tail chaser, but note how the factory buildings provide an effective scene divider.  Also note the Tomix display layout, which also uses trees and vegetation to provide a screen to make the layout appear larger and avoid the toy train "round and round" look.  Also effective is the use of slight curves rather than tangent track. I think the Tomix layout has been displayed before, and is part of ongoing sales promotion.
