The Standard 4 Tank certainly looks at home Brian.
And I really lke the dairy. Every layout should have one.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Many thanks, Brian, for a very nice set of photos. The scenery is coming along very well. It's very good to see the BR Standard 4MT 2-6-4T 80041 (83G, Templecombe, ex-72A, Exmouth Junction), with its train of preserved coaches.

Business with a Somerset pipe and tube works from Cornwall is picking up. Here we see a rake of empty "Tube" wagons returning from Cant Cove.

Also on its way ex-Cant Cove to Somerset from Wadebridge is a newly overhauled "North Cornwall Pasty Co." bogie van going to Somerset for the attention of the local signwriter.

Time moves faster than I do. A small update


Two wagons at the head of a mixed freight from Cornwall. A tube wagon and a bogie wagon to be sign written for the North Cornwall Pasty Co. The freight is hauled by a new addition to the local roster which arrived today after a little success on Ebay.
 

This one I've posted for no other reason than I like it! I was messing around with the camera to try and improve my photography a bit. It's a difficult layout to photograph as the lighting at the moment is fixed to the wall behind the layout. One of the many jobs is to move it to the front and use led strips.


An overhead view of the mixed freight with the dairy in the background. The basic construction of the dairy is finished. It now needs pipework, a perimeter fence and general clutter. Looking at the photo again, it needs a background to cover the bodge work on the wall behind.

Many thanks for the update, Brian (Mito). The three photos. are, indeed, very good and the scenery is coming along very well. I also really like the dairy.

I also have D6577, bought long before the Dapol ones were available. Apart from the body sitting too high above the chassis they are still excellent locos. and D6577 will be regularly rostered on 'through' services whilst D6571 will stay in Cornwall.

The "Tube" wagon is for carrying pipes, etc. from your factory. I have ensured that everyone who's interested in 'through' running has at least one. One will be going to the mysterious island of Sonmel, soon, along with a mermaid!

Thanks for the comments and "thank yous".
I bought some drinking straws the other day to make some tubes. They are in fluorescent colours! I hope I can tone them down or maybe they could be "happy" pipes. 8)

If they are plastic drinking straws they are soon to be banned so you bought them, just in time. 8-)

Me too!  At the time of my second attempt at British 'N' gauge in 2007, I bought several locomotives; some Farish but mostly Dapol.  D6577 was the best, by far.  The next best one was also Farish, a 'Type 2', sadly in blue livery and weathered like it had been dropped in a midden. The others kind of ranged from poor to appalling.  Then I saw a Kato 'F7'!  It took almost 10 years before an impulse purchase of Railway Modeller to read on the train allowed me to see a Union Mills advertisement.

Now Sandrock is moribund, I read the Railway Modeller every month and inflict the Table-Top Railway on you.  Things change!


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'd better get some more then, a different diameter if possible. It will take some getting used to using straw again. :)
