That reverse curve was part of the track plan before anything else! So it's rather odd that it has taken me until now to find the photographic potential of it. I got the camera and lights in place again this afternoon to produce a variation on the theme. It looks as though the Jinty is ready to depart at last.

Oh, my giddy aunt!  What a fabulous photograph.

Thank you.

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 1920s to the 1950s.

That is indeed a splendid photograph.
Brilliant.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

It's time for the Jinty to move on and as it starts its journey southward a north bound train passes hauled by a J39. TMC weathered Jinty versus factory 'weathered' J39 - no contest!

I had another try at the reverse curves shot. A slightly different camera angle places the telegraph poles better but shows the front edge of the baseboard. Id like to find the perfect version of this view for my photo album but Im starting to wonder if it exists!



While the camera and lights were in place I found a new view of the church.

Great pictures, as always, Roger.  :thumbsup:

I agree with you about the weathering differences.

No contest!  :beers:

My piano playing disproves that theory!

More nice pics Roger,they look pretty perfect to me.I play keyboards too a mixture of piano and organ type music. Had a go at guitar but my short fingers made it hard,been playing piano since I was a kid.      More pics please, looking forward to seeing how you can improve them.

Thanks Chris. I'm taking photos for my photo album idea, some of them repeating set-ups similar to ones I've already posted here but showing the latest changes to track, point rodding, etc. I've been wondering if one of those bound photo books might be a good option though, of course, it can't be added to at a later date as can a conventional photo album. Either way it may be nice one day (fairly distant, I hope!) to have a souvenir of the layout to look at. I'll post some of the new pics from time to time.

A move to the north end and a general view of almost the whole length of the layout. This shot took a 23 layer focus stack.



Looking around the picture I rather like the top right corner.
