Roger, Wrenton is looking beautiful as always. A bit of a random question: how tall is the layout, say, from track level to the top of the church? I'm struggling to get my head around the potential height of my purported layout with regard to my ability to get it in and out of the dining room. I'm working on the assumption that as the height increases, so does the fragility.

Pete, from baseboard top to church tower top is about 7". The background is 9" - it would have been better a bit taller for photography as I often have to clone in some extra sky.

Thanks. Amazing isn't it - I'd assumed the church was about 9-10", or even higher. That's reassuring!

The church may be smaller than some, though, thanks to a gale in 1658! The prototype used to have a spire but it tumbled down during that storm and was never rebuilt. I also reduced the overall size of the building by about 10% so if you're including a church you may find it's nearer to your estimate.

Thank you for another superb photo. That goods train could, easily, be a real one. Modelling a real-life building in slightly reduced size (e.g. 9/10) is an excellent tip.

Same train as the previous shot but a bit further down the line. Can't keep that corner out of view, can I?!

Excellent. Itís hard to believe that itís a model.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

 :thankyousign:
Is there anyone else like me who suspects Roger has a drone and is actually photographing a real location and passing it off as his model?
If it looks right and it works then I'm happy.

Caught me out at last!

I almost added that comment to my post - Sussex was far from sunny this afternoon!

Time for another picture with a train! The CCTs and horsebox which recently went through several stages of weathering are having a run behind an immaculate loco. Not sure if CCTs and the Mk1 full brake bringing up the rear would be a feasible formation in real life?



As NPCCS (Non-Passenger-Carrying Coaching Stock), they would surely have to have a passenger rated Brake Van, such as a Mark 1 BG, a Hawksworth Passenger Brake or even an ex-SR Van B?

Only the roof of the fourth vehicle is visible but it is a Mk1 BG. So all is well!
