Looks good Chris.
Just right for you to sit with a nice orange juice and watch the trains go by.  :beers:
Looking good to me too.
Why not fresh squeezed grape juice? :)

Yep, looking good.

How about old, bottled grape juice ? 🍷

Hi all and belated Happy New Year,

Not a lot to report as we had guests for a long time. Then back to work this week  :( .

Have done a bit on the layout but thought no point in trying to post pics until it's all sorted.

Looking at vineyards in the area where the Principality is set and did find this for inspiration......

https://www.visitfrenchwine.com/en/vineyard/visit-the-roussillon-vineyards-wine-tourism

No room for the town but I do have a Tomix? chapel and the 'goblet' vines seem easier to model. Might have mentioned 'goblet' vines before, can't remember.

Anyway, slowly plodding away and hopefully some pics soon. No vines yet, still on the plaster bandage stage.

Hope you're all eating salad and drinking lots of water  :D  ;)  :sick2:

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hi all, testing flickr....

https://www.flickr.com/gp/168181094@N07/y363u9

Thanks to Martin (Port Perran) for how to use flickr although not quite there yet as don't know how to show just one pic and that it shows the pic without having to click on it.

It's the back, well front of the 'El Gaitero' restaurant by the way.

Will give it another go.

Thanks for everyone's patience.

Cheers, weave  :beers:

I saw the pictures without any difficulty, Chris.  It looks like you have mastered the process.

They were very nice and I look forward to seeing more.

All the best.

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.

Hi John (and Tim),

Thank you for your replies.

What I mean is I want A. to show one pic at a time and B. be able to have the pic showing rather than people having to click on it to see it.

I'll get there one day maybe.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Chris, in flickr you will see three icons in the lower right corner of each picture. Click on the middle one, the arrow pointing to the right ("Share Photo"). In the next window "Share 1 photo to:" choose "BBCode" and copy-paste the URL from there into the reply window here (I've also reduced the size to 1024 pixels width).
Your photos:

Hi all,

Just testing Flickr, yet again, and hopefully introducing Sant Pau de Mar, which started as a test layout while building the new Port Regleun but couldn't resist a bit of expansion and starting some scenery.

Will explain tomorrow if this works....

Well that worked.

Was supposed to just be 2 ovals and a couple of sidings to run a few trains but thought my Spanish and Southern French trains were missing some sun and scenery so it grew slightly. The right hand side has more plans but concentrating on the station area on the left. Have more pics of the developments which are a bit rushed as the wife (phone camera owner) is off to New York on business soon so it was taken off me. Will explain all later today.

The main thing is it all works and I can run trains. This layout, although small is not getting ditched.

Cheers weave  :beers:

PS. Before anyone trashes my layout plan (although it still might need trashing) one track is standard gauge and the other Iberian. Hopefully everything will become clear.
