A couple more photos of village buildings and villagers. I generally like to use figures in stationary poses, so there are several instances on the layout of a couple of people having a chat.



But sometimes a walking figure appears. One man and his dog...

So far Wrenton has only got one signal, built from a Ratio LMS single post kit. I needed a bracket signal and decided to try to make one using parts from a couple more kits which were tucked away in the Ďto be usedí box. Iím sure that using etched components would produce a finer model, but I like my plastikardÖ

I based the signal on a photo I found in a book, but changed things a bit. The picture shows two views of the model.



The posts are 60thou square strip and the platform is built up with 20thou parts. The supporting bracket was cut using the Silhouette Portrait machine. The handrails are 20thou plastic rod. The other parts were from the kits, including the lamps which I cut off the original posts.

Since taking the photos Iíve painted and installed the signal on the layout. Photos to follow in due course.

Hi Roger,
The signal you have scratch-built is amazing. I am blown-away by your skills.
Excellent modelling.

Hello Roger,

My computer says 'Thank you for this post is locked' (I've never seen that message before).

I'm not going to be defeated in showing my appreciation by a box, so...

 :thankyousign:  :wonderfulmodelling:  :greatpicturessign:

All best wishes.

John

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.

Dare I make a suggestion ? Looking back at the photo's on this thread,( I do this almost daily for inspiration) I think pictures with loco's in them would benefit by the removal of the front coupling,they are a bit of an eyesore in my opinion, its easy enough to pop them out for photographic purposes.Personally all my loco's only have one coupling,(except shunters), I simply change ends if I fancy running tender first.

I agree, I've always thought the couplings are horrible. I have, in fact, started removing the front ones from the locos - the B17 in the two recent photos is done and I'm sure that one earlier post had a loco sans coupling. Will try to remember to do the lot as their turn comes for posing for the camera!
