Simply Outstanding, I done the old 'leaning in' to the screen to double check it was a model railway layout  :beers:

A marvellous layout - thank you very much for the photographs.

I remember the era well.  The magic of British 'N' gauge, to me, is that the trains (especially multiple units) look so much better in this livery than they did in 1:1 scale forty years ago!

I should be grateful to see more photographs in due course.

Thanks again and all 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.

A few more pictures

If it looks difficult it probably is, but might as well get on with it anyway!

Wow Andy,

This is just stunning!  Superb modelling.  Are those the NBrass portals?

Great pics! Thanks for posting!  :thumbsup:

I recognise the factory buildings in the background, as I have something similar on my layout:



Mine were a kitbash - started out as a twin road diesel loco depot from Model Power. Are yours a kitbash too?

Either way, you've got a fantastic layout there. :thumbsup:

How do you reach the stuff at the back of the layout?   :admiration: :admiration: :admiration: :superblayout:

Even more important, how do you re-rail under all that catenary?   :worried:

I don't see any knitting, just masts? You wanna try it when you have the wiring as well, as I do!

I've seen live catenary in Z!

Micro tweezers required!

Oh yes indeed, it's readily available from Marklin. I could have my N catenary live (have test run it in the past) but I don't really see any reason to: for one thing I'd have to cover the fiddleyard with the same knitting and that really would inhibit setting out stock etc., and also the pickup is then one or two small contacts so not as reliable as wheel pickup.
