It takes about 10 minutes to put together and take down.
Next step - scenery: paint the table green.

how about just getting a green cloth to put over the table? you can poke some holes in it to run wires underneath.
take a look at this temporary layout technique from wargaming. do scenery as little bits and bits around structures so you can just plunk them down quickly or put away fast! cut out colored paper for roads to plunk down. fast to play fast to put away!

Oh wow! Nice roster! I see you have a certain soft spot for 475s/ 115s face, right?
That Kamome looks great, makes me wanna venture into the world of Kyushu... haha ~
As Jeff have mentioned, a green cloth from Daiso is also a good suggestion for a temporary layout, easily to fit and remove ~
Looking forward to your train videos soon!

Oh yeah, green table cloth is a great idea. Thanks Jeff! Sammy, it's time to venture out to Kyushu territory.

This is where it all starts. Good train selection.

I like the small scenery patches idea - will have to look more into it. Sadly and kinda embarrass to say that this is not the beginning as this is the culmination of over 15 years of what should I do and many of life's distractions. I think I've found what I like most about this hobby and that is collecting passenger trains and now more specifically Japanese passenger trains. I don't tire of admiring my trains sitting on the track and taking a couple of spins around the track. But I do admire and in awe of the many wonderful scenic layouts that many folks create.

I would have actually preferred the E3-1000 in the old Tsubasa Color but this one was available and with this I have all the E3 Liveries.
Yes, they are. The 455 is the Kato 10-189 Green Liner and the 415 is the Tomix 92581 Kyushu.

Inspired by Martijn's rail yard module at a smaller scale. I'd like to add two more set of tracks to make it 10. This is something I've actually been thinking more about rather than building a layout.
I had to to see what it can accommodate.

Nice! Always great fun to shoot photos of a roster shot like this!
Amazing range of E3s! You're just missing the E3-1000 Tsubasa colour I think ~ And also maybe the E3 Nasuno?
Nice to have both 400s in old and new colours!

How does the E3-2000 Tsubasa run? I have it on order. Also nice to see such a collection of E3s!

The E3-2000 runs smooth and fairly quiet - good runner overall. Finish wise, something is kinda off with the end cars. I will take pictures and give a better description of it. Unfortunately sometimes pictures won't capture what the eye can see, but I will try.

Wow Junior! That is quite a nice fleet! One can never have too many E233s~
