 :hellosign:  & Good Day to everybody,
      Had some serious shed & thinking time last couple of days. After a trip to B&Q came home with 5mm Extruded polystyrene sheets, not expensive, they may prove to be too flexible- we will see although doubling up would be easy. Please remember these sheets are to be placed on shelving & this will be a raised section on the layout, supported by Celotex or similar. Ok a short video to show my thinking
http://youtu.be/4tvfTPeYNnc
 To the left just out of shot will be a right hand crossover for branch trains to join the main line East. The two main lines run straight ahead with platforms both sides for 10 coach trains.
  The first Left hand turn out is for the branch line to West Porthsea Quay with a short goods/ run-around loop to the left, the top Left hand sidings are for the shunters. Note only 1 Peco platform piece, but lots more to follow.
   Now because I love to watch my trains go by
http://youtu.be/Ypg0-vq9Yrw
    A little bit of imagination & you see Hymec D7043 heading East to Exeter, passing Sulzer D5379 heading West with "The Star of the West" train ferry service via Le Regulen through to southern France.
  Much Much more to follow I hope very soon, all comments & suggestions very welcome.
       regards Derek.

Unitrack? Yay!

Scenery needs an upgrade, though. Just sayin!

Excellent stuff, Derek.

Thank you for these films.  It is indeed a pleasure to watch your trains go by.

Very neat tracklaying as well.

Best wishes.

John

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.
