Yes, ahm, this is for the model railroader, who, ahm, has no space, but wants to have a plausible scenario with a big train, and cars, and urban backdrop and Preiserlings placed in an unmotivated manner on the street. Thanks for your attention (California Zephyr in Richmond, CA, 1968).

No space? Modern minimalistic flyovers? Highway and several railroad mainlines embedded in a rural green landscape plus a navigable river before the backdrop of a steep cliff cramped on a narrow shelf layout? Abrupt change between bucolic environment and big town? ICE trains calling in a station just adjacent to the greenery? Tunnel portal and highway overpass disguising mainline tracks disappearing at the end of the layout? Take Wuerzburg in the German river Main valley.
