    clarification of what is the 'mountain cap'?

    Hi, cpNscale,

    I think your scene looks better with the mountain cap on the 2nd level. That serves to break up the scene and hides the fact there is a loop and a corner there.

    Future photography at that point will also be enhanced as the scene will look more like a separate contained scene.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I think you need the cap on it. It makes it look more like a mountain.

    I also vote YES for the mountain :)

    EDIT: I just notice from your two angle shots, thats pretty way deep in that corner... I think you should have your mountain cap exactly that - a cap that can come off. You might need to grab some cars that have derailed back there, or do some track cleaning.

    Definitely a keeper CP!
    By having the scene rise toward the backdrop, it creates a "forced" perspective, & adds distance, & visual impact to the layout...makes things seem larger than they are.
    I'm not aying the track has to rise...I'm talking about scenic elements...mountains, hills, trees, buildings, etc...

    Oh, btw...Welcome aboard! Make yourself at home! :)

    i agree with arlaghan you should keep the mountain top and keep it as a cap it looks better and will henance the sencery when you get that far
