I wasnít really happy with the new incarnation of the Trepol Bay backscene so this afternoon, Iíve played around with it again. I think Iím happier with this attempt which Iíve tried to photograph from my normal viewing distance (or thereabouts).

Yes, your changes are good! And, I like your decision to leave the back scene natural (no buildings).

Hoping for better weather so we can enjoy walking the cliffs around Roseland tomorrow

I always enjoy visiting our son in Somerset, but I really envy you who live in Devon, Dorset, and Cornwall. Just wish I had the time to know it better.

I think itís impressive for their ages.

Martin, I'm certainly impressed. Hope I can do as well!

I've told my granddaughter that my great-granddaughter's first book from me will be a railway theme! :)

Much improved. It sets off the front scene beautifully.

Seconded!  It looks terrific.

I’ve been playing around adding sounds to videos.
This is my first attempt with a T9 passing Trepol Bay with a short freight.
It is actually real audio of a T9.i’m not sure it really works but it’s ok for a first attempt.

I've no idea how you did this, Martin, but the end result is very good; very good indeed.

Congratulations.

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.

Thirded! An excellent match and I love the screeching seagulls at the beginning. The T9 seems to be working hard. Really adds to the atmosphere.

Thanks all.
Chris. Yes, the seagulls are right the way through but I got the balance of the sound a little wrong.

John. Itís all done with mirrors!
Seriously, I used Garage Band (which I use to add backing music for my guitar). It allows layering of sounds quite nicely.

Best Regards
Martin

Very realistic mate, I was almost thinking that you have DCC now.....

Well, as you know, I scrapped it and went back to DC.

I'm fighting the urge to buy a couple of O gauge with DCC sound though  :o

Well, Iíve started painting my LSWR water cranes and decided to make them dirty (as they seem to always be in that condition in photos).
Question though. Should they be set at platform height or at ground level ?
The one in my photo is temporarily balanced onto a piece of balsa that represents platform height (roughly). This will not be its final position.

Martin, I think Laurence might well be right.

Does this help (both types are shown - but not together!)?

There are two types made by Peedie Models. One is platform mounted whilst the other should be ground mounted.

The one in the photo. is the trackside version, it has a longer base. The shorter base, which comes with the firedevil, is the platform mounted one.

Trackside:

Platform:

I hope to finish painting mine if I get time.

I indulged in a short running session on Trepol Bay after our very agreeable meal this evening.
First we see a rather grimy D65xx diesel and the head of a motley collection of wagons laden, mostly, with various bits of what can only be described as scrap metal.


And next, very unusually for me, I undertook a bit of shunting on the harbour lines. The local Class 04 shunter is busy reorganising some wagons which have just been loaded from an incoming coaster from France.
The fishing boat moored below, is awaiting departure at high tide.
