Wonderful photographs, Roger.

Like Mick, I have a soft spot for these engines.  In my case probably because of a Tri-ang one many years ago.

I'm jolly chuffed that you chose a steam engine rather than one of the diesels you were considering!

Happy shunting...

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.

Yep, I had a Triang one with synchrosmoke. Came with the Car-a-Belle train set.

I didn't give a monkey's about the car transporters.... I only wanted the Jinty!  :-[

That box was a fair size. Might have contained something else... So stay tuned!

In the meantime here's another shot of the Jinty.

I agree, the Jinties are very attractive little tank engines and I do like the highly realistic weathering which matches very well the goods stock.

D5031 (BR type 2, later class 24) is available from TMC in as-built condition, green without warning panels.  New to March depot June 1959, soon transferred to Stratford for a couple of years before being drafted to Willesden in 1961. Sounds about perfect.

Thanks to everyone who suggested diesel options, and especially to Richard for this offering. So those who want to keep Wrenton steam only, please avert your gaze!



As usual this has had the TMC weathering treatment. Runs beautifully, very impressive at slow speeds especially now it has had a good long running in session.

That looks really good.
Has the driver just popped over the fence to buy a 99?

Let's hope he's not in the Red Lion!

Another great picture, Roger.
I have 4 of the class 24s and all are whisper quiet runners. If I don't pay attention I lose track of where they've got to!

I have got a Class 22 though it's very camera shy. In fact, I don't think I've ever photographed it, even for myself yet alone for the forum. It's not very pretty either, being factory weathered. I only bought it because it was cheap. I don't know if Wrenton could pass as somewhere in the Western Region? If it could I might indulge in a Castle as well as those other diesels. And some chocolate and cream. Could get expensive....! Perhaps it's fortunate that those buildings are clearly East Anglia, though the Midland Region seems to be able to get there.

Noted for next time! Probably another steamer first, though.

Like the weathered Jinty very nice,I must have a go at weathering mine. The only trouble is the paint would be dry in seconds in this loft,its 90f now has I write this. The fans have been on for ages with the window open so you can guess what it was earlier.
