PS. What do you use for your grass? It looks very good.

Cheers,

In a departure from my normal buildings I have given Ratio ago with this Goods Shed, it was a bit of work with the paint brush but I think it doesn't look bad and it is a bit different than the massively used Metcalfe one.

I hacked a Metcalfe one to fit the space then covered it with Slaters stone plasticard

Another Ratio Kit has been built, I must admit that at the price they are I was rather disappointed to find that the goods shed and the engine shed are virtually the same kit with only a few mouldings being different 95% being identical.

Many thanks for that super film, Di.  I loved the 'Britannia' running light engine.

I have a soft spot for the BR 'Standards'.  As I am meant to be a 'Big Four' modeller, this might become inconvenient!

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.

I have been busy adding more of the fantastic Revolution Trains Class B tanks to my rake, I am up to 13 now, I should have ordered more but if anyone has any they don't want or need I am in the market. I have also added some pylons from Modelux they have been improved since I last bought some they now have beads for isolators which looks good, I have also added a few more trees and shrubs.

Great video and those Modelux pylons look amazing.

Dare I suggest some of the trees could benefit from a gentle colour change by adding a little scatter?

I've tweaked a number of trees. Just dabbed on neat PVA at random and then put them in a box of suitably mixed fine scatter and gave it a good shake. Tap the tree to get rid of any loose material. Never had any success with hairspray!

Keep the updates coming.

I loved the view from about 2:18 onwards seeing the trains passing could have watched that all day. Lovely setting :beers:

Very nice video Di.

Plym Bridge is really starting to look good now. I'm sure you are pleased with it.

Alec.

would second that. really coming to life. buildings bring a real sense of a town scene but for me the music would prefer classical or no music. i was sitting outside my local cafe - music is too loud and not conducive for thinking, abrasive but to my point, di a beautiful portrayal of a town scene

Plymbridge:-Much to my joy 0-6-0's run slowly and smoothly thru' Kato point work with out so much as a little stagger, this was a pleasant surprise as the Pannier and the 08 had not been run for months and they ran with no problems straight from storage. :)

At least you have an equal number of Westerns and Warships but you don't show any Hymeks, class 22s or class 14. Lots to go at yet! ;)
