    Looks like a good start. My suggestions would be, Tone down the shiny plastic on structures and rolling stock by weathering, replace that plastic tree with a built up one.
    Also, are you going to make the ties visible ?

    I have noticed that you did not balast the switch tracks with good reason. Have you thought to put black emery clothe under them?

    no i didnt, But I'm relaying the track today, and I have vacumed all of the ballast up. and relaying the track neatly so it doesnt look like some guy with tourrets did it.
