Certainly enough to keep me busy for a while...

...and due to be unboxed when I can find the time!

Roger,
I think the last box is slightly out of focus. Must do better!
LOL!

For me, it's them tiny little nuts and bolts that doubles the kit build time!  :worried:

Roger, you'll need a structure-heightening programme if you are going to run 'double-stacks' on Wrenton!


Happy building.

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.

Sorry about that! It was only an eleven layer focus stack!  :doh:

But the carpet monster has to be fed. >:D

Oh heck, have I got to build another foot bridge.  :(

Shouldn't the colour be slightly darker, they seem too blue to me. :)

I thought it was coal trucks you were getting. They're box vans :confused1:

Not any more, they're all unpacked and the bodies have been given a quick spray with Halford's primer, working outdoors. Thought I'd get that done today as there is rain forecast for tomorrow. We haven't had any significant fall here yet, so the garden is gasping and I hope the forecast is right for once.

Now what will look best - a train of fitted stock going one way and unfitted going the other, or two trains of mixed fitted and unfitted?

I believe unfitted were grey and fitted were bauxite (but could be wrong) and for some reason I like block trains of the same colour so I'd go for separate trains

I think I agree, Mick. Perhaps the Butterley types in bauxite and the planked ones in grey as two separate trains. Must find the Lifecolor paints and get started soon!
