I considered a visible tunnel, but having both tracks (and try to forget about the track from Bailey's Produce on the left that needs to parallel these) into a tunnel didn't seem too prototypical.  I'd still like to hide them behind the buildings.  So I thought about using a taller building.  I had a CCK building I started, but the front wasn't cut correctly (Jeff Grove is sending a replacement).  I then remembered I had a Downtown Deco building that might work, which was actually taller.

Better.  But then I had another thought while I was resizing the photos, move both buildings forward.  I can then increase the curve behind them (no trains are running here, only a couple of cars need to fit on the interchange track).  Works even better.

I will have to find a narrow tall building to fit betwixt the other structures, or, heaven forbid, scratch build something.  I'll leave it like this a few days and see how I like it.
