Paul, if it was me I would only add scenery on the area of the helix that connects to the finished area of your layout, with one exception. The exception would be the top two laps because you have finished scenery on top of the helix.
If after you live with it for a while and decide to go for the full magilla, you should still be able to match what is there and find a way to light the inside so you can see in there when you pop up in the helix. With the backdrops on the upper deck installed I moved on to the backdrops for the main deck. I wanted to be able see trains running on the helix so I could keep an eye out for any problems as I ran trains, but I didn't want the helices to detract from the main visible area on the layout. Moving around to the front of the layout the helix is visible when you're running trains through a viewing port cut in the particle board. Bill Brillinger had the excellent idea of incorporating some prototype logos on the fascia.
Having never built a multi-deck layout before, I found out one of the hardest parts (at least for me) was finding a good way to have the mainline duck behind the back drop at the end of the deck.
As I mentioned earlier in this post, some of the backdrop masonite I'm using is recycled from my last layout.
Hey Paul, I was thinking of only going as far as the painted area and the very top but upon looking at it Bills idea and your execution looks very good.
I stumbled across a video of the pokey division entering a tunnel and thought you might like it. I then found a couple more with proper trains, that have some shots of the tunnels, hope they help with your plans of scenery.
I finally worked around to the other end of the layout with the rest of the masonite backdrops.
When I finally get my vinyl flashing to cove the corners on my backdrop, I'll probably put some sheeting over this joint instead of trying to tape it with drywall tape.
You'll notice at the bottom of the fascia you can see the L-girder ends sticking out here.


The viewing port for the helix needed some backing support on the sides to keep the masonite from bowing out due to the curve. I will say I really am jealous of those who have railroad friends who can help with construction. Well Paul if you move down to Texas I know where you could get some help, and have a place to run your coal trains while waiting for the layout to be built. Our CNC shop is busy cutting out wheels and axles, and the Laser shop is cutting out the truck frames. It will aid in your taking photographs later and I suspect when viewing the layout later you will not notice the area below the top two turns.
The first helix stack I decided to tackle has a town above it with attending bench work supporting it around the helix as well as through it. That kind of worked out well here with some tree covered hills already painted on the back drop (although here they are actually upside down).
I decided to sand the backdrop masonite for the lower deck before installing them, so they will hold paint better.
It sure would have been nice to have another pair of arms and hands when it came to mounting that masonite sheet around the helix! When running trains you will be able to look in and see that everything is fine and any guest operators will not wonder where their train went. This backdrop will get primed over and repainted, but it gave me a little idea of how things might turn out in the end. I mocked up some cardboard strips to get a general outline for the masontie fascia, but cut it a little big.
I'm thinking I should trim the fascia back here so I can add a mountain slope up and away from the tunnel portal as I did at the helices on the other end of the layout.
With 2 stacked helices at each end however, as I mentioned, it really becomes visually overwhelming. However, you supply the motor and we will make the custom bracket***Call for more information) for $250.

Swing hanger to be added, and rods to add to the cylinders.A  The elliptical is real, however, we will be adding some fauxA  spring plates on top to achieve the "real looking" stacked spring appearance of the elliptical.
The main truck assembly is welded for stability, and the side frames and spreaders have been notched to make sure the assembly can be welded square. The wheels are also broached and keyed to insure they won't slip while pulling.A A Below is our newest improved CNC Machined Part.

Once the train has been tested, the set is delivered to an automotive paint and body shop for final body work and painting.
The last thing is applying the vinyl letting of your choice and your train is ready to be shipped.
