Nice pics there Roger, by the way what focal length lens are you using.

Thanks, Chris. It's the Olympus 40-150mm which I think you have, too, set to about 130mm.

Almost the same set-up as yesterday. One train moved slightly (backwards!), same lens at the same focal length but a change of position for the tripod.



gorgeous photo Roger, have just finished catching up with the Wrenton workings after a few weeks away - can only echo all the comments of the other folks, cracking work for us to drool over - loved the link to the archives on the BBC, really interesting and thought provoking.  I keep telling myself those bird cage coaches are too expensive, but your layout and pics make a compelling case!  especially as a C Class in Black Southern livery is now "preserved" in Perthshire

Thanks, Andrew. Those coaches are lovely models. I paid 120 for them which seems fair given their quality. The loco is rather fine, too. Totally out of place on Wrenton, of course, but I've stopped worrying about such things!

I will have a look through my "pot of people" and see if there is anyone in there that looks like they would be up to tending the farmhouse garden for you.

There's now not just one person in the farmhouse garden but three. Refugees from Windmill Hill, perhaps? Many thanks to Kevin for sending them!

The Jinty has appeared a few times, but I can't remember if it has ever been hauling anything but goods trains. So, just for a change:

Hi Roger,

Great picture of the Jinty, and it really looks good with that weathering. I plan to send my stuff off to TMC for weathering after Christmas.

I've also just seen the new arrivals in the farmhouse. So glad they arrived safe and sound, and they look just right in their new surroundings  :D :D :D

All best wishes

Kevin

Thanks Kevin. I think TMC do a good job. The Jinty was treated with their heavy weathering and is probably the most grubby loco I've had from them!

I've also just seen the new arrivals in the farmhouse. So glad they arrived safe and sound, and they look just right in their new surroundings.

Thanks again for the little people It seemed a shame just to use the kneeling figure so I went for a family group. I painted the standing lady's hair to make her look young enough to be the mother of the little lad doing the watering and I did a bit of surgery on the kneeling girl, as I mentioned in my PM. Glad you like the result.

Love the Jinty with the suburbans. One minor point, I think it would look better running bunker first, but that's just me.

Or did they not do that with passenger stock?

Perhaps the local photographer should look out for the return working?

How are the fires near you, George? The forecast seems to suggest even more extreme temperatures on the way for much of the country.
