While I'm not going to build a specific location on a specific rail line (maybe I should, ... next time :-), I do like the idea of setting my layout in a general location. So the Black Forest it is. I'm going to ignore the fact that the Schwarzwaldbahn exists, in fact I'm probably going to settle on a fictitious valley with fictitious place names. However, I am trying to evoke the feeling of the place, so I'm going to use scenes and scenery one would reasonably find in the general area of the middle black forest.

This applies both to look and feel, but also train destination and car routing once I get to that stage...

In other words I'm not going to model a specific prototype, but I'm trying to be faithful to what the prototype might have looked like.
