Thank you Martin, I had to dig back into the thread, but here is bit of the back story on how the Iron Bridge replica appeared in Perthshire

https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=30692.1815

The track in the foreground will have an iron box girder arrangement and in front of it again is another track that will have a more tradtional stone bridge

Thanks Derek   :beers:

A little bit of flock makes such a difference



Added a bit here too, between the refinery lines and the branch line



The former for the hill-end in place, helps me start to visualise what I can do to ease the transition, a cliff is still the favourite!  But maybe a steep fir-lined slope



Another passenger set back from the shop, when I went to fit the decoders, on the non drive car, 2 out of the 3 fine wire leads that supply the lights were detached, beyond my soldering skills ... got it sorted under warranty with DCC Supplies, so all good now



Something a bit more interesting for you I hope, we had the pleasure of 60009 in Perthshire recently so I have a few vids of it for you over the next few days to intersperse with my updates

Good progress, Andrew.

And thank you very much for that nice little film of 'Number Nine'.  She's a marvellous engine.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Thank you John, I wholeheartedly agree, stunning to see her on the mainlines, sad to think this could be her last year in steam  :(

Just in case you wondered why the station waiting room roof was not fully painted ..... it was a bit of foreplanning to have a place to put these guys, I need to add a ladder, but looks like Yosser Hughes has branched out into roof work



As part of the celebration of "Union of South Africa" being on the rails in Perthshire in the real world, I fancied to show it being prepared for its journey at Muthill  :) 



The wagons I was making have reached the point they can hit the rails   :beers:  some were more successful than others, but it is a good way to give your layout a bit more variety when it comes to wagons.  4F 44027 takes up the duty















Here is 60009 leaving Perth, bound for Aberdeen

Yeah, but a necessay evil, rumour was, later in the day, that she had developed a firebox/boiler issue and had water running in & affecting the fire and was a bit stricken, so the class 37 was doing most of the work

Many thanks for the updates and photos., Andrew. I'm guessing that the larger "Tullibardine" van is a Lima one? It stands out from the Minitrix Shoc Vans.

Thanks Chris, I think so, I didn;t really notice it during the work phase, but as we all know on this forum, the photo is a much better critic than we are sometimes and it really does stand out.....

The Lima short wagon chassis is ~2mm too tall, but the bodies can be mounted on a Peco chassis to give a better ride height.

Yes, Mike. I've read that and I think that would be a good solution, Andrew.

The tar tankers (I intially wrote that as tart ankers .... which would be a means of securing your favourite fruit pie!) were spotted on the branch hauled by Class 35 D7035













Later in the day, the same loco was spotted with a few empties being returned to the yard







I found that the tar kettle had toppled over during the night .... I can't decide whether to put it upright or make a calamity cameo out of it :)



While I was waiting at Gleneagles for 60009 to come through on her return journey south, we were treated to one of the "new" services in Scotland that are made up of shorter HST sets
