Yesterday I finally did something to try and hide, or at least diminish the shadow.
Not perfect, but it is a lot better, I think.

What are you using as a light for that area?

I must say it looks good with the new painted back drop.

My lighting is all LED fixtures, not florescent. Nine of them lite the room.

You could consider adding a couple of clamp lamps from across the room,
and aimed kind of sideways, those could fill in some of the shadows.

The clamp lamps may also bring out different colors depending on what bulbs you use.

When building a layout, have you ever found that things just didn't work out the way you planed?
That has happened to me, again.

I don't draw up any formal layout plan.
A few pieces of sectional track might be laid out to see if an idea will work.
This approach can and does get me in trouble every so often.

In the Big Stone Lodge area,
I didn't leave enough room for a walkway between the track and the table edge.

My solution, build some scenery on a triangle of 1" foam. (photo #2).

This shot was taken at eye level, the way it would be seen in person.

Larry,

I've run into the same problem a few times myself. 

Sometimes a small triangle, like you just did, will work. 

Other times I've used a small bump-out. 

Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Great solution!

I probably would have over-built it and added benchwork.
I like your easier solution.

Regards, Dave L.

My son made this shot with a wide angle lens.

It shows 80% of my layout plus myself.

It's distorted but you can get a good idea of the way things are in my layout room.
