Well it looks great to us. A highlight of the season on MTF. And congratulations on the CTT expo.
On a different note, I have a thought that may help in the future.
IIRC, you previously had some 3-dimensional facades on the second level's riser walls. And, IIRC, last year you opted instead for vertical walls to gain some scenery space. And you ran the "snow" down the walls. Looked great.
You could "paint" scenes on those panels; if there's the artistically gifted in your group. Me, I'm not. So I find photos, cut and paste them and then print a "wallpaper" to glue to the panels. You could portray portals around the tunnel openings, ivied brick walls, store fronts, backdrops for the existing scenery, flora, fauna, whatever. Additional scenery w/o additional space. And it doesn't add any more items or effort in the construction (maybe a little more care during transport/storage). Printed, pasted in place, and a coat or two of rattle can clear.
In a way, it kinda' simplifies the assembly by not adding to it.
Just a thought.
