Thank you! I have to resist running trains on there now & get on with building it  ;)

That looks stunning. I have to say, layouts like that are the whole point of N, doing things you wouldn't have space for in 00.

The 33 is gorgeous, knocks my Poole one into the reeds for looks.

Fantastic stuff.

The 37 and the HAAs look great on the viaduct!

A few short vids of the train testing, class 47 going a little too fast  :no:
See if you can spot the trespasser walking alongside the track in the first two of the vids, I just noticed it  ;D

I only just noticed it when playing back the videos, I'm not sure if it met a nasty end or not when the class 37 came through. The perils of a shed layout  :goggleeyes:

Perhaps you should paint hi-vis vests on them ;)

All appear to be running well.  BR blue is not my own choice of era but it certainly looks good here.

Thank you very much.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

In every new build there are bugs to be sorted out :doh:

I'm very glad that I found your new thread, Stu. I agree that the viaduct is superb, highly realistic and the trains are already looking excellent running across it. I'll be following your layout's development with great interest. Any plans to have one of the Swansea Landore BR Blue Class 03 back-to-back coupled pairs appearing? 8-)

Thank you Chris for the kind comments. No plans at the moment for class 03's but maybe in the future  :hmmm:
Most funds & time is being taken up with the layout construction at the moment.

Some more woodwork done on the layout. The back scene boards I've made detachable, they just slide in & out on runners so I have easier access to the fiddle yard for track cleaning, de-railments etc. Also made a start on cutting out & fixing thin ply formers ready for the scenery.

A bit more progress on the layout. I've been doing some scenery work, making formers etc ready for the mod roc to go down. Also some wiring put in place for buildings & signals. A few photos..
