So I have made progress with both ends of the metal lifecycle. I have some SPAs with the coils, and sorted out my scrap train too (Sans loads for now)!
The class 20 waiting for entry through the station, the 60 pootles on through out of town!

Following the LMS express day, I thought it was time for the great gathering 2.

This venerable old lady has been added to my roster, thanks to a couple of forum members. She's a little noisy but, at thirty or so years of age, so was I ;D
Here she is on a short, (very) mixed freight.

Sounds like she's got tooth ache! Seems to run very smoothly though  :thumbsup:

Seems pretty smooth for her age.
I’ve got an old Poole 94xx pannier which makes a similar sound. Runs ok though.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Yes indeed! I saw them a week or so before we met up with you in Blackpool, Mick.

That's a very nice engine.  I hope you get a lot of fun running it.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Bit of a long one this time, included are a Blue/grey HST, an EMT 156, GBRF 66, EWS 60, Test car 10 and a Pretendolino FO.











The 156 has issues (won’t move or power up, it’s DCC fitted, and the paint and glazing needs attention), the 66 has possible split gears.
Support crowdfunding - it’s the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, let’s make it happen.

From time to time, strange things turn up in the yard at Steinheim am Main. But then again, when it has to double up as Peterhampton Junction, perhaps it's to be expected. Having discovered that SR "Bogie B" vans lasted in traffic until the mid 1980's, it was inevitable that one would join the already substantial parcels fleet. And surely any layout with Southern Region leanings would be incomplete without a class 73...

Just returned from a local exhibition with this little bundle.



Star of the show for me is this little fella;



I’ve wanted one since I started thinking about building a layout so safe to say I am “well chuffed”!  :D
Gold Hill - my rule 1, “just for fun” micro layout;

Clouds Hill - My first layout currently on hold;

Arriving at the last week, i bought this Beauty from Rails of Sheffield,
it need five days from Britain to Germany. Today i fit a Kühn 045 DCC Decoder in it.
She runs very smooth, no noise and with the matt varnish weathering outfit she looks very elegant.




This is the first photo i have uploaded here.

Better a small and ugly Layout as no Modelrailway
