Hope the dentist visit goes as well as can be expected, Pete. I'll be very interested to see your Hawthorne and Elderberry blossom effect and your Gorse and Rhodendron bushes that you made last night. I've tried to make both and, while the gorse came out quite well, the Rhodendron less so.

Probably lost a bit in the light and camera phone, but I used 4 different WS foliage colours and randomly sprinkled 3 different fine turf colours so there actually 12 different variations.


It's not fair!  You chaps are talking about the colour of trees and I'm waiting so patiently for my tennis ball to be thrown.

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.

On the way back up from overnight at Penzance the NMT did a run St Erth to St Ives and another Truro to Falmouth docks before heading home to the North East. Last seen just before lunch at Dawlish crossing a GWR Castle set on the 11.38 Exeter to Penzance.

Thanks Derek.
Like a lot of people I have a thing for HSTs. I remember being very excited back in October 1978 when I had my first trip on a 125 from Paddington to Newton Abbot the first weekend home from College. Great servants to the railway but things move on. Waiting for the 800s to be produced in n gauge now.....could be a while!
Back to early 60s through running next week.

I also remember with great pleasure, the early days of the HSTs or InterCity 12's as they became known as. I remember a BR model showing that, originally, the bodyside horizontal stripe on the power car was to have been black and not BR Blue. It looked very good.
