Morning Derek,

Nice pic. Glad you're having fun running trains.

By changing location, do you mean to another room or, as I presume, no longer set in Cornwall?

What's the plan man?

Cheers weave  :beers:

That looks excellent, Derek; thank you for the photograph.  I'm glad that you are running trains - I find it great fun and a 'switch-off' from life's pressures.

Your photograph is a super example of how 'N' gauge is wonderful for modelling the present-day railway - the natural choice, I think.

I look forward to hearing of developments with this great layout.

All the best.

John

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.

Good to see things running Derek.
I too am confused by your comment. What’s changing - you, your layout or its fictional location?
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

 :hellosign: Good evening & thank you Chris, John & Martin first apologies for the abrupt end to last night's post.
       The plans for the layout are unchanged only the physical location will change, still very much West Cornwall in the mid sixties but I am definitely Rule One & find it difficult to choose just one era or even country so many superb trains.
   Future plans are waiting to be finalized on the location for the layout so just running trains, much thinking & planning & oh yes really enjoying my time on the forum. Thanks for looking
    regards Derek.
