A left-over shot from an afternoon photographing my J39 with some grain wagons. As a reminder, the wagons were bought unpainted, treated to lots of Lifecolor and home printed water-slide transfers.

Yeah, that's right... I remember that project.

And very excellent they look, too!  :thumbsup:

Another shot looking from the back of the layout and with the temporary 'trees' in place to hide the real world.

City of London continues its journey and moving the camera further along the backscene gives a view of the area around the church and the road disappearing between trees.

Another view of the southern end of the layout. J39 approaching.

Thank you, Roger.  Yes... and EF Benson.  I think that their lovely books used to be called 'light novels'.  I'm not aware that much in that style is published nowadays; more's the pity.  My top favourite author is Jane Austen and I'm keen on Anthony Trollope and Joanna Trollope.  Also Agatha Christie and Margery Allingham.  And, when I'm in the mood; Thomas Hardy.

All best wishes.

John

Good selection of writers there, John. If anyone else fancies some Jane Austen books and they have a Kindle or suitable reader, Amazon are offering them and a selection of other classics for free.

Thanks for reminding me of the "Darling Buds of May" books (which are pretty cheap for the Kindle versions). I might dig out my DVDs of the early '90s TV series with David Jason as Pop Larkin to pass some time during this enforced isolation. Perfick!

Photo of the day - the J39 a bit further down the line.

Might I cheekily add George Eliot to the list of Kindle worthies? 8)

Of course, and there are also works by Conan Doyle, Dickens, Jules Verne, Lewis Carroll and Robert Louis Stevenson.

Sorry, Roger this is all my fault - I blame me!  May I please make things even worse by asking if I might be allowed a name-drop of, hitherto, absolutely no relevance to Wrenton?

Best wishes.

John
