That's an excellent film, Steve.  Thank you very much.

The Down Slow - Platform 4 - Down Main sequence rather reminded me of the present-day Haymarket.

Apart from the unrebuilt 'MN' of course!

I am tempted to try to overcome my technological buffoonery and try something like this.  It's a good way to view a layout.  A good way to view a 1:1 railway as well!

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.

... and a happy Christmas to me!  I only ordered this little lot yesterday, expecting delivery after Christmas, so gold star service from both Hattons and Royal Mail there :thumbsup:

Have a peaceful and happy Christmas, everyone :beers:

I wish you the same. Excellent presents: a very nice selection of BR SR coaching stock and a matching horsebox as well as a pair of LMR "Speedfreight" containers on Conflats. The BR Standard BCK (top left) is identical to those that can be seen at Cant Cove and Trepol Bay on Waterloo services so can it be bringing some Cornish guests? Whilst the horsebox can be conveying some of Lord Trevelver's thoroughbreds? The Maunsell design brake end coach (middle right) would, normally, be working with at least a similar brake end coach but, I guess, it is a preserved one?

Oh for the day when the layout has the ability to receive travellers from Cornwall or indeed anywhere else! Hopefully the new year will see Phase II sprout*, something for the scenic fiddle yard to connect to :)

And you can never have too many BR(S) brakes  :thumbsup:

great footage and pretty smooth over the points, thanks for the tips on cameras.... And for one of the best gags so far in the history of the forum....

One major question is raised by your attire though - what did you make of The Last Jedi.

Very best wishes

Well, I'm very impressed!  Both by the size of the bridge for the money and the speed of delivery.  I ordered it from Japan/ebay on 22nd December for £31.34 inc (free) postage and it turned up this morning :thumbsup:

I'm intending to use it as a roadbridge in roughly the location shown, it has a bit of the London Paddington about it, or Bristol Temple Meads, or Newport, or ...

That's a fine looking addition to the layout. And a bit of a bargain too.  :thumbsup:

...Peterborough?

It looks great on your excellent layout.

All the best.

It's that bridge again :wave:

After trying it in various positions :goggleeyes: it still looks best in the location I bought it for.  Now there's a first! 8)

I can see this view being a popular photo vantage point in the future, imagine a pacific storming under the bridge rather than a slightly out-of-focus coach.  Unfortunately the camera position is exactly where another (smaller) bridge is planned so I'll have to make the latter removable.
