The structures I of course built up, then put on the layout.
The rest of the scenery went in as I was building it.
I do have a cornfield that I put on a sheet of Masonite, then placed on the layout and put scenery over the edge
(you can't see the edges at all except from the trains passing behind the field, I noticed from a camera run through there but you can't see it from the aisle).
I built this wax "factory" as a diorama which was then placed upon an area inside my "hairpin curve" on the layout.
You can see the edge curving around on the left, this has been "covered up" with dirt & rocks & some green stuff.
I didn't build the wax factory to be installed on the layout but decided that it needed to have somewhere to "live".
So I scraped the scenery off the inside of the curve and stuck it down.
This has become an operational feature since it has a small loading dock next to the main line...the boxcar is sitting there at the moment.
Soooo, sometimes a diorama can become part of the layout, simply because there is no other place to store it.
