There must have been another photographer around as this shot from a different angle must have been taken just a second or two later than yesterday's!

Looking down at the station from near the road bridge.

Same trains, slightly different positions, and photographed from over the road bridge. Temporary greenery in the background digitally blended into the grass area.

There's something about that shot that I like. Almost as if it was a photo of a bus that just happens to have a train in it. The village appears as a jumble of buildings in the distance too, another thing I like about the photo.

Good one, Roger!  :thumbsup:

It's that Ivatt again, together with the 4MT. I'm pleased that I added a bit of foliage along the edge of the baseboard to the right of the tunnel mouth. The temporary tree background is set up behind that edge for this shot.

I really like the convincing gloom inside the tunnel.  One often sees model railways where this effect has not been achieved.

Best wishes.

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

Thanks John. Of course it's the work of a second to bring daylight into the tunnel (and to make track cleaning simple).



The portal is about four inches from the end of the baseboard and the track continues on a hinged flap which can be lowered to increase access to the bay window (out of shot to the right).



And onto that fits a 'lid' made of foamboard painted black on the underside....



...and gloom is restored.

That's a lot better than my bits of card.  I might just crib it.  :-[

Yes I like that idea too for when I do my other tunnel at the other end of the layout. Superb pic by the way of the 2MT coming out the tunnel.
