This might be a useful opening strategy. Let me know how it goes, could be useful to know for the future.  :uneasy:

As MacBeth stated "I am in blood Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o'er" .... or a more recent incarnation "I've started so I'll finish....."  the magnitude of the task is now clear, but it will be a worthwhile exercise to get a grip of what I have and divest (thanks Keith for prompting the correct terminology  :thumbsup: ) the surplus stock over the remainder of the year.



The filing cabinet that these drawers live in, is tucked in a corner of the van, directly under Muthill station/nudist colony - has 15 drawers and takes the A4ish foam inserts quite nicely ... can get 15-20 loco's in each drawer with a bit of judicial positioning.



Started with the diesels, checking how many of each class I had ... (the collector in me  (....no not hoarder  :telloff: )... started to think, maybe I should get an example of at least one each class of diesel .....  but I managed to quash that idea ... for now  :angel: )

Ooh-er, Missus!  Are they shared, Andrew?

Profuse apologies for this silly and rude imposition into your serious discourse.

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 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

I took a break from stock taking and picked up an idea I had about creating a local control panel to operate the Auchterarder station area, here is what it looked like at the outset



Bit of strip down



New supports added



The loconet connection will need to be moved



However the old aperture will be useful to feed cables through, cutting the new one was a bit of a chew, the dremmel cutting disc was just not deep enough!

..... and there we have it, the full MPD of the PRPS laid out in full



.... though there is always room for one more.... I got some vouchers for Harburn Hobbies for my birthday, so a trip to Edinburgh was hastily arranged (which ended up costing me a new TV & Sofa as well) ... and this handsome Class 57 loco in West Coast Railways livery got snapped up






With the locos checked and counted (now just need to give them all a bit of track time to run them all - I turned my attention to the passenger stock - finally seeing all the maroon livery coaches in one place..... let the sorting begin



In amongst all that, progressed the new local control panel for Auchterarder

I hadn't been aware of the availability of those accompanying coaches my wallet is bracing itself for another assault! ..... tasty prices on these nowadays ... I was really tempted to get a set of the birdcage 3 car sets.... but the price still puts me off... shape of things to come I guess

On me phone at the moment at Bowling club (as one does on a Friday night here near Chez Bealman), and I've been zooming in on some of those stock pictures.

Some pretty cool stuff there! Thought I spotted an NGF hopper there for a minute!  :beers:

Good to hear from you George, hope your on the mend, a night at the bowling club sounds the perfect tonic

.....  they have been spotted in the area, so your eye's do not decieve you   :beers:   (though I should say these are an imitation, bootleg version, not endorsed by @Tank   :-[  therefore any formal investigation will be told that these are grain carriers belonging to the National Grain Federation  :angel:)
