Great picture! Really like how the filter you used on the backdrop blends it into the scene.

Really nice. It took me a minute to realize what was backdrop and what was model. Great job.

For the opening of a new tourist train line in Germany, I just made another photo scene, but with much less effort. A private rail operator started to run a tourist train on Sundays from Doberlug-Kirchhain to Lichterfeld (Brandenburg state, Germany) for visitors of the opencast lignite coal mining museum. The trainset is the formerly DB-owned diesel railcar 772 342, which I own as a TT scale model. The photo scene shows exactly that diesel railcar in front of the F 60 conveyor bridge, which is the highlight of the museum. The scene is fictional, however. The real place where the railcar stopped is a little more away from the conveyor. The two industrial hopper cars behind the railcar are models I scratchbuilt almost 30 years ago.

Looks great. I can only hope that in 30 years, my scratchbuilding skills are as good as yours.
