I've been busy since last night, building the beautiful Emerald Night, and breaking out some train sets for a town to host the new set. Well, this one is a mix of Classic, World City, and Farm with lots of green representing more of a small country town (with the exception of the World City Train station that's got a more modern look.
I'll share a few more pictures, but here's the town. I still need to build the Train Engine Shed, but this didn't come out too bad:
NOTE: Building around track is tricky.
Here's a shot of the "older" down town area:

I was too busy doing the Classic Town contest to build mine this weekend... priorities!
The layout does look nice, although I think the newer Train Station would probably work a little better than the World City one

it would fit in very nicely for sure... ah well, it´s a WIP of course and we´ll soon be able to see how that project´s going to expand...

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I added the Train Engine Shed Sunday and have the new station on order. Can't wait to make some changes again. These WIP creations are fun! In the picture, the town looks so small, but in fact, I've placed two large boards on my regular table making it much larger. The images mask the true size of the creation.
More to come, perhaps even a Train Mystery...

The houses are all on their right place - I only would add the stables to the farm and not let it stand seperately.
It's really nice to see the Main Street appearing there!
Although you already have some of them on your layout I'd perhaps add some more minifigs and cars - but that's my opinion.
The train crossing is a very nice addition, too, and adds more realism.

I'd tend to agree about the ultra-modern station amongst your otherwise classic styled village, but it's your town, and it is a neat set. I like how you split up the farm, the smaller sections have a more classic town look to them, then one large farm complex.
As to the buildable area of road baseplates, if you need to expand the buildable area, check my sig for 8 and 16 wide baseplates.
When we see the expanded layout. I hope it includes a stop in Gravestone!

I did combine the farm set, but ended up placing the cows in another part of the town. I love those brown fences! -Reminds me of an Eagles song.
You'll also spot the Hobby Train Crocodile engine in the background. It's a fantastic train!
In any case, Train Town is shaping up nicely, and you may be seeing it again very soon.
Until then, here's the latest:
