Hard to believe we are looking at a model and N gauge at that.
Superb craftsmanship.

This railway really is a wonderful piece of modelling and the excellent photography really shows that! 

Happy New Year to you all.

From the ‘to be used’ box comes a set of station staff figures. There’s already one in the signal box, but he’s invisible unless I shine a torch into the building.  I’m not sure if I’ll use the guards – most of the time they’ll be waving their flags and blowing their whistles to an empty platform! And where do they go? If at the ends of the platforms they’ll have to run to catch up with a short train stopped further down the platform. There is a porter who will definitely make an appearance but one figure has just been fixed into position. He’s the ticket inspector and he’s just emerged to welcome the passengers from a train arriving now, hauled by City of London.

A few minutes later and City of London departs with my recently weathered Mk1s.

A very nice light touch there Roger. :thumbsup:

I've been taking a break from weathering, and have added some extra clutter to the platforms. I spent some of this afternoon cleaning wagon wheels and managed to do forty vehicles before I got bored and gave up! And as clean wagon wheels don't make for an interesting picture here's a shot of the station showing the porter and some luggage at the end of the up platform. I've decided not to include a guard here, so the porter provides a bit of human interest. I might add another passenger beside him when I can find a suitable figure.

Superb.
Really superb.

Seconded!

It looks like a photograph from the Colour-Rail catalogue rather than a model...  :goggleeyes:

All 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.
