Bonjour Derek,

Love the old TGV, brings back memories. Will get one, one day when we move and have room for train leg stretching.

Cheers weave  :beers:

One of your wagons has shifted by the way  ;)

Thank you for the film, Derek.

It was good to see two trains running at the same time.

Great progress!

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.

 :hellosign: Ok, hope you like the video ?. Life is being a right roller coaster ride at the moment but definite progress in the right direction. Unfortunately the scenic side of the layout must wait for now but running trains is most certainly No 1. Work is taking me all over Cornwall to help out as the Summer uplift kicks in but a meal break in St Austell means an added bonus as this picture shows the location of the buses to the station


Taken from behind the main car park shows short HST set about to depart for Penzance.
      Father's Day brought more goodies


GF observation coach in lined Maroon, ok LMS but no problem it's the start of a new train  :D , my eldest son bought me a late 60s Coach to add to the MK.1s for my birthday.
The



The kit's to build are also growing, more fun to look forward to.
Last but certainly not least


TGV Sud-Est from Kato, what a superb model, over 10 years sat in the box, just ran, only one complaint an absolute  :censored: to couple those ten coaches but rated on the same level as the Pendolino or the Kato 500.
    Thanks for looking and any comments always welcome
       regards Derek.

 :hellosign: Chris (Weave), yes all missing parts were hiding in the box of Kato slope risers,  :-[  , where else?. Thanks for spotting the wagon will be re-railed next time in shed.
 :hellosign:  Thanks John (Train Waiting), only one thing better than running trains, let`s have more the merrier  :D
    regards Derek.

 :hellosign: & Good morning to friends round the corner (in Cornwall) & around the world, hope the portly gentleman in Red left lots of N goodies.
  Apologies for lack of posts & now since the recent Forum update my poor old computer is struggling to cope with anything new.
   The good news is the where we are moving is sorted, (barring serious health issues or a lottery win) just doing the number crunching to decide the when, (yesterday would be great)  :D. A bedroom slightly bigger than the shed is earmarked for my train room.
   Wishing everyone a happy & prosperous New year with lots of N modelling.
     regards Derek.

Are you staying down here Derek?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Derek,

I'll guess Greece or with Brexit, are you going cold Turkey on us?

Hope West Porthsea is still on the cards.

Anyway, good luck with your venture and have a Happy New Year.

Cheers weave  :beers:
