Many thanks, Chris, for these photographs of your lovely layout.

I think a preserved railway is a splendid subject for a model.  Why think otherwise; I wonder?

Thanks again and 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.

Having seen this layout 'in the flesh at Ellesmere a couple of years ago I can only give a couple of thumbs up for the preserved idea. It really suits the layout.

The Ridgacre Branch is only going out once this year (in November) as I have a lot of commitments with Little Aller Junction and club layouts. I might just make some changes to make it look more like a preserved railway.

The brewery would go and be replaced by a loco area and car park. This would give a better view of Ridgacre station which would be a good thing. The old buses would also go. In order reflect the move from early 1960s to current day I would have to fit conservatorys to half the houses behind Worlds End station.
