Absolutely fabulous photographs, Martin.

Thank you very much.

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.

A different view of Trepol Bay. Taken from an incoming fishing boat just as the sea is starting to pick up a bit.

Iíve been messing around adding some sea at the front of the layout.
Iím not sure if it works or not but I think itís ok and it does give a different persepctive on the layout.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

The sea looks great. Especially in the colour shots. Certainly adds a new dimension to the layout
Not sure its supposed to do that

I honestly thought the black and white was from the original place you based your layout on when I first looked at it :beers:

Both excellent, Martin, but the black and white one is as close to perfection as I think one can get.  A real 'railway in the landscape' picture, apart from the fact that about a third of the landscape is seascape!

Terrific stuff!

great photo's Martin, great extensions ... are those known as seaboards?

Caught the video too, brilliant use of sound, I know from my dabbles with it how tricky it is to co-ordinate and sync things, you did a pretty good job by my book!  I wouldn't have thought to use garageband, will need to explore that more....

Agreed! Maybe the coloured sea is a bit too green?

I know itís very tricky, still not convinced that my harbour isnít too blue?   :hmmm:

I think extending the foreground and, where necessary, the background, to enable better photos. is an excellent idea and really like Martin's photos. However, I prefer the colour one.

Regarding the colour of the sea, a lot depends on the colour of the sky, the amount of clouds, and the amount of sunshine.

As I'm sure it's always a lovely sunny day at Sonmel, I think your blue sea is fine, Keith.

Young Tommy Trevornick was out yesterday with his box brownie and first ever roll of colour film.
Imagine, if you will, his delight, as he stood atop the road bridge to the East of Trepol Bay station as this special train rolled through.
Ex GW 4-6-0s are comparitively rare at Trepol Bay, though Tommy is used to the large Battle of Britain pacifics which appear from time to time so to see two green locos together was a very special treat.
Anyway, Tommy rushed to complete the rest of his film before taking it to the local Boots branch. He was delighted with his shot of a Grange and Manor at the head of a rake of immaculate chocolate and cream stock heading Westwards towards Truro.

Many thanks, Martin, for posting Young Tommy Trevornick's excellent shot of a BR "Grange" and preserved GWR "Manor" at the head of a rake of immaculate chocolate and cream stock heading westwards towards Truro. It must have been an enthusiasts' special.
