The train looks super behind the 'Schools', Alex.

Birthday greetings!

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.

All my buys from the  Lancashire & Yorkshire DCC MRG - MRX 2018 Model Rail Exhibition today.

The first is a Minitrix N gauge BR MK1 Maroon 1st class I think it's FO (not sure if it should have any more suffix or prefix)


Next is a rake of lovely little wagons, Sportman chewing gum is Graham Farish UK, Tate n Lyle is Lima, ICI Salt is Peco, Gibbs SR is Graham Farish UK.

The 5 plank wagon is Graham Farish UK, The Tarmacadam 7 plank is Bachmann, The mineral wagon is Graham Farish Made in china.



The next two are unpainted but not stricktly from the exhibition, they just arrived in the post that's all from an N Gauge trading group seller.


I got some nifty tweezers too and some liquid poly for the final photo is...

A Ratio Coaling Stage in 00 for my shunting layout, bargain price too.

The Minitrix coach is a Mk1 CK. They went a bit overboard on the non-1st Class lining.

Are you trying some air to rail refuelling there, RailGooner? If so, your drogue looks a bit slack...

 :D I noticed that too, after I'd packed her away and posted the pic! But it reminds me of some of the neat tricks that were possible in the simulator.

With two 'chicks' on the pods we managed to, in an instant drop the landing gear, deploy air breaks, throttle back on 2 & 3 and engage full reverse thrust on 1 & 4. The result was a sudden enough deceleration that the chicks overtook us while still connected! :D

I was no pilot though - I was groundcrew. I remember one of our Captains was such a great pilot that he could, consistently and at will, loop the simulator! An amazing sight to see even in CGI. 8)

Since Dapol started selling off class 56s in their monthly special offers, I've been half hoping they wouldn't include the BR blue version, and half hoping that they would. Anyway, in July they did...

I'm seriously considering one of those myself.

How close is the blue to proper rail blue? A lot of Dapol stuff I've seen in the past has seemed too green/yellowish.

Not bad, but not correct. It's way closer than the class 73, but not as good as the class 33 by Dapol, or my Farish diesels. The photo below appears reasonably true to colours on my laptop at least and you should be able to see the differentiation, although the Dapol 33 and the Fraish 37 have both been weathered by TMC.

Mmmm. Thanks for that, Bruce. It confirms my suspicions, but it's probably good enough for seventy quid ;)
