Excellent modelling, as always, Roger.  :thumbsup:

You can let NewportNobby have first option on the lease... upstairs-downstairs, no good for me and me crutches  ;)

Probably hard to put in a stair lift and not much space for a layout, either!

Yes, Roger

The term 'arris' means to cut diagonally along the length of a square crossection timber.  The uncut angles are then inserted into diagonal cuts in the posts.  Ideally, the three rails all have joins at different points along the fence, giving maximum stength to the fence.  However, in 'N' gauge, I don't think it is a viable option.

As ever Roger, fantastic work.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

What's the going rate, Roger? I think I want to move in :D

I think the surveyor's report will point to the dodgy foundations so probably best avoided, Mick!


I don't mind the earth moving for me now and then :laugh:

The OED only has it as a noun - "a sharp edge formed by the meeting of two flat or curved surfaces." Arris rail is defined as "a fence rail with a triangular cross section." I see Plastruct do a 30 thou triangular rod which might serve, though a bit over-scale and not quite the right cross-section. I think I'll stick with my 10x30thou strip!

Cheeky! I expect the estate agents Quibble and Cuss will have the details about the house but certainly won't mention the subsidence problem. And for those who don't get the reference see http://tbmod.com/rm/Madder%20Valley%20MRJ%201994%20dec.pdf (this link should now be working).
I just spotted that the first image shows the name as Gribble and Cuss - I've not noticed that before.

That's odd. The forum seems to have included the full stop at the end as part of the link. Try:

http://tbmod.com/rm/Madder%20Valley%20MRJ%201994%20dec.pdf

(The original link should be working now.)

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.

Endless summer on most model railways, Mick  ;)

I remember reading the sleeve notes on some album back in me college days.

" It was the summer of 67, and we knew it was almost over."

Might have been the Doors, or some album like that.

Crap comment, even though we're coming up on the 50th anniversary of Woodstock  ;D

Sorry, Roger. Great pic, as always.  :thumbsup:

Though almost a couple of years ago Wrenton did wake up one morning to find it rather misty.
