A little more done.


The blue phase! I painted the backdrop blue today. Goes rather well with the foam. Everything is ballasted except the three sidings which will most probably be moved, depending on the buildings that have yet to be made.



I boxed in the back of the control panel to hide the rats nest of wiring. The glass of wine on the top is only a stress test to see if the top is strong enough. :beers:

Looking good.
That wine glass gives me a hint what feature my layouts will have to include from now on: a glass holder!

Thank you for the update, Brian. The photos really help to imagine how it will look when complete. It should be a very nice little layout to operate.

You seem to have some sort of glowing spaceship outside. We Brits rarely see that. Have you called for Muldur & Scully?

It's looking great, Brian.

Thank you very much for the photographs.

I hope you enjoyed the small glass of wine!

All 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 do apologise for the size of the wine glass but I didn't want to get too paralytic before dinner! I shall make sure the glass is in better proportions next time. There's even room for the bottle. Now that would be a good stress test.

Not sure who your friends are but that orb is in very short supply at the moment. That little depression you have near you is sending your overspill down here. It's one export we could do without but at least it has broken the long drought we've had here. I gave up drinking water to help conserve it.

Hello Brian,
one more layout in my favorite size ( 120cm x 60cm ), look forward to your progress.
It gives me some more inspiration for my own planning.

Taken by an itinerant photographer. The location is at yet unknown but somewhere between Cornwall and Somerset!
Not a good photo, taken on my phone, it's very flat.

Thank you, Brian, for this photo. It looks very good, already. Somewhere on the Somerset Levels, with the railway raised above the flood plain?

Thanks for the comments. My knowledge of Somerset is minimal, why I chose there is a mystery, to me at least. I want a neutral zone as this side of the layout is principally as a backdrop for photos. I have a couple of LMS 4f as well.

LMS Class 2P 4-4-0s, LMS Fowler Class 3Fs, and, of course, S&DJR 7F 2-8-0s, were all used on the Somerset & Dorset but, not as far as I know, LMS 4Fs but my knowledge of the S&D is far from extensive.

Thanks. I seem to remember seeing a photo of a 4f double heading on the S&D but have forgotten where I saw it.
