Agreed. Great service from Colin deserving of applause :claphappy:

Yes, without a doubt: :claphappy:.

I have always been very impressed with Union Mills: both the service and the products.  That's what inspired me to have another shot at British 'N' gauge.

No. 2516 is a lovely locomotive; I hope it brings you much pleasure.

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.

Many thanks for the updates. The scenery is looking really good but those signals are amazing. I'd never heard of the manufacturer. Do they only make GWR signals.

As lovely as the UM model locos. are, they look even better with some simple detailing and detail painting. 8-)

The buildings are coming along well but I'd recommend buying white metal or plastic chimney tops / pots pieces rather than use the cardboard chimney pots.

I'd almost forgotten I'd posted those pictures, Chris!
To get an idea of what Greenmax do you could look at
https://www.google.com/search?q=greenmax+signals&newwindow=1&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiLgun0w-fdAhWKLMAKHYbVDZ0QsAR6BAgAEAE&biw=1920&bih=1005
and there is a link to the Greenmax thread on the forum with the pictures (previous page)  of those I made.
I still can't find the loco crews which I painted last December and had to put away "safe" when my modelling space was needed.  As a result, any work on my UM engines has stalled in frustration.  >:(
The chimney pots aren't ideal - they are lengths of styrene rod - but the cost and size of commercial pots weren't to my liking!
I'll try to post some pictures of scenery development soon.
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

Many thanks for the reply. I had not realised that the signals were the Japanese ones. They are amazingly close to British ones and GWR ones in particular. I'm wondering if I could convert them to SR ones?

With roofs so visible in 2mm Scale, its well worth the extra effort to get the chimneys and, in particular, the chimney pots right, especially when the rest of the buildings is looking very good. I'm looking forward to the next scenery update of this very attractive layout.

Sorry to read about your missing loco. crew. They will turn up when you're looking for something else!
