Thank you for these great pictures, Derek.

Running trains certainly is fun.

Best wishes.

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.

Great updates Derek, loving the way the layout is coming together, quite a range of rolling stock.... no kettles though :( 

Good luck with the future planning, I second the comment about not having enough sheds .... I seem to have acquired another one last month!

Not really my cup of tea but that streamlined affair is one good looking locomotive.
Enjoy your running sessions.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Agree with above. A mean looking "face"!
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

 :hellosign: & good evening.
    Many thanks John, yes this certainly what it's all about.
    Many thanks Steve, the 500 will always look up to date, remember seeing Shinkansens on your past layout's.
    Many thanks Andrew, yes steamers will appear in due course. Where do you put your sheds?  :D
    Many thanks Martin, so much variety, loving it.
    Many thanks. Brian, there's nothing quite like the Shinkansens anywhere else.
     regards Derek.

Lovely looking loco. No room on Sonmel for one of those, but... if I push ahead with planning permission for the extension....   :hmmm:

I must resist the dark side (or in this case the shiny silver side).  :veryangry:

Hi Derek,

Looking forward to more pics and a vid. You mentioned you had a TGV so just putting in a little request  :).

Our house move is still ongoing but the good wife always seems to think of me and my hobby while viewing. The one we saw on Friday, which is very much a potential buy, has a dry cellar. She said that it would be perfect for me  :hmmm:.

As you know, am doing the small Brittany layout to practice scenery and run a few trains. Can't remember if I, someone else or no one suggested this before but maybe you could do a long scenic stretch by the sea on say a 4 ft x 8 inch board with two tunnels at each end for pics, practice etc.

 Easily moveable, connectable to the Kato layout hopefully, possibly reusable on any future build and if just scenery ie. no buildings, you can run any era, country etc.

Keep on running.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I don’t like the sound of a dry cellar at all!
Where’s the wine going?

Sorry, removed reply as just wanted the pic but then read the content and thought a bit inappropriate for the forum.

 :hellosign: A very good evening all, Keith you would never regret watching Kato models on Kato track IMHO pure poetry in motion.
    Chris (Weave), lots of interesting ideas, thank you. A dry cellar is not all bad & Martin the wine goes under the layout obviously  :thumbsup:
   Regards the TGV, yes it's high time for a good running session, next day off/ shed time
      regards Derek.

 :hellosign: A very good evening to all, managed some shed time today so had a bash at videos, now Just need to figure out this U Tube business  :hmmm: . First most disappointingly the TGV has two wheel sets missing so because of the coupling needs to be in order couldn't run today  :'(. Here's a picture, sorry Chris


Now why did I tidy the shed, ah well them wheelsets can't be faraway.
    Consolation is another Kato set, this time Orient Express 1988 Paris to Hong Kong 7 car set. In my wisdom chose D7049 Dapol Hymek for the motive power & yes no problems, the longer it ran the quieter & smoother it ran  :thumbsup:. Sorry only one photo for now,


Many thanks for looking & will have a look at U Tube now
    regards Derek.
