Cool.  :thumbsup:

Definitely  do NOT weather that locomotive!   :telloff:

The fiddle yard looks as professional as the rest of the layout. You have to submit this to the major magazines.   :beers:

Don't worry, it's not going to happen !

I'd like to sort out some signals, weather some of the wagons and provide them with loads, plus a few other jobs before going too public with the layout. Not that this place is private, of course...

Any more possums lately?

It was a chilly, misty, autumn morning as our intrepid photographer ventured forth with his trusty Nikon S-2. He hadn't loaded it with his usual Kodachrome, instead choosing the much faster, monochrome, Ilford HPS. He was rewarded with this shot of a J39 leaving the station with a short train.

That certainly is a great photo.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you very much for this splendid photograph which reminds me of Ivo Peters' work.

It's the second brilliant black and white photograph I've seen on the Forum today!  Here's the other:

Thanks again and all the best.

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.

A little later the sun began to cut through the mist, so it was time to switch back to colour film - just in time to capture 'City of London' speeding past. (Not sure how these Midland Region locos are getting this far east - thank goodness for Rule One !)
