It's a great little layout, and the display of vintage and modern figures alike makes it all the better!

Thank you.   The vintage figures have a charm of their own.

It reminds me of Amsterdam, of the Haarlemmer Houttuinen and Tussen De Bogen.

In Amsterdam there are offices under the railway, a printing shop, cycle repair shop, an instrument builder and a café. After years of neglectance, this is now the place to be.

In the UK, the "arches" are often used for small businesses such a car repairing and servicing or metalworking an let out at low rents.   But Network Rail who owns the arches are now selling them off to private landlords, not always to the benfit of those renting them:
