I just stuck a Peco Elsie on one end of mine (not particularly visible here, unfortunately):
But I'm mad and use 3 link couplings, I just need to make a few more when I can gather enough enthusiasm ;)

I don't think you are mad, madness is drilling holes in the bottom of n gauge loco lamps so that you can put them on the lamp irons with a magnifying glass and tweezers and move them when you wish to change lamp codes (I'll go back to my rubber room now!)

Such devotion to realism fully justifies the white coat with the wraparound sleeves, Alex :laugh3:

Looks like there are enough of us to form a club - the OCD's perhaps?

Over on RMWeb Tom (Turbosnail) had been tinkering with a few 3D prints so when he did one for an F1 I asked if it could be shot down to N and he obliged :) This is the first print I've played with that isn't the ususal Shapeways FUD and it comes in a nice resin. Downside is the support isn't wax but fun and therapeutic to remove!


Plus side is there is zero layering so no tedious sanding.

To motorise it another Terrier was sacrificed with drivers from a Dapol B17 and the larger wheeled Farish front bogie. This is as received minus the supports.


It's alive!


Of course it had to be in full Wainwright...



Just need to sort some brakes for it.

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.
