After a month or so of on-and-off work, the hole in the wall is hid. Now operators won't be able to see where the staging yard joins the layout; the trains "mysteriously" appear before their eyes.
There's still more work to do the right of the scene--got something unique planned for that. But now, at least, the upper level is more-or-less back together; now to tackle the lower level of the layout.
To re-cap the process of hiding the hole, see the photos below. Links to previous posts about hole hiding are at the bottom.
