I like it.  Not being able to see everything at all times lends an aire of mystery and danger to the whole layout.  Big SmileThumbs Up

Well, Thank You!

I'm really enjoying the scenery aspect of this. But the problem is : once you start, all the other spots that lack scenery really stand out. That's why I don't light any of my buildings : once you light one.... yep, ya' gotta do 'em all !!!

 But I realized the train room is a great place to sit and relax, even if the trains aren't running.

It's the ambience...  I'm having fun!!!
