That's a fantastic film, Martin.  You have added a new dimension to the relaxing pastime of simply watching the trains go by.

You have clearly achieved the 'enjoy' exhortation of the 'footer' (very, very sorry - this is a shocking pun, given the circumstances of your film) to your posts.

Thank you for the inspiring film and all the very best.

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.

Yes, I think they are just that little bit different. Despite being in our sixties weíve seen them a couple of times.

Thank you for the video, Martin. Good to see how everything fits together from a distance.

Despite them being a Manchester band (one of the many cities in which I've lived), I'd never heard of I Am Kloot before. I'll give them a listen.

Thank you.
Yes, I am Kloot are favourites of ours. My favourite song is in my video ie Northern Skies.

Iíve had a set of Springside models GWR headlams and tail lamps for about 4 years and always thought that they were out of scale so never bothered with them.
A message from Chris (IP) prompted me to find the lamps (which took a bit of doing) and give them a go to see if they might look ok.
Well- I know I have express headlamp code up which is a little unusual (though very much not unknown) on a branchline. So.....I speeded up the prarie tank a little to make it look important!
Anyway, the little lamps are just held in place with a tiny bit of tacky-wax and, on viewing the video, they arenít quite straight but, I think they look ok. I did wonder if they would vibrate off but ran the train for 10 mins and they stayed in place.
Here is the prarie certainly looking important as it hurries towards Truro:

Thanks for the video, Martin. Head (and tail) lamps make such a difference. It is quite possible that a branch portion of a through express train could be headed by a 'Small Prairie', especially in the off-season when it would have fewer coaches. In summer, a 'Large Prairie', like 4167 or 5198 (of 83E, St. Blazey), would be more likely, if not a 'Mogul', "Manor", or "Grange".

I recommended the 3D-printed loco. lamps (available in BR, GWR and SR types) to Gideon and he says they are really good. I will order some of the loco. lamps plus their BR tail lamps.

Using 'tacky wax', which I don't have, is an excellent idea. (I was thinking of using a drop of Super Glue.)

An unusual wagon appeared at Trepol Bay this afternoon in the form of this 12T ventilated fruit van from BRís Eastern Region.
Aware of the growing reputation of Messrs Prisk and Jones (Fruit & Veg Wholesalers) a developing vegetable retailer from Ipswich has entered into an agreement with the Cornish company to supply early season brocolli and new potatoes for distribution throughout East Anglia.
The wagon has been worked down onto the harbour by the local 04 shunter and will later be moved into the private sidings of Prisk and Jones by Harry the harbour horse.

Thank you, Martin, for another excellent photo. The van looks very good. Another sunny day in Trepol Bay, I see. 8-)
