I'm rather slow getting around the many exemplary layouts on this site, but here I am admiring again the marvelous work that is Tregonning! Of all the splendid work showcased in the Forum, I think this is my favorite! Thanks for the additional images that provide a lot of references for my own future modelling. Incidentally, I'm understanding better every day the wisdom of less is more!

A very nice surprise was to see it featured in the new "N Gauge Journal".

Glad it has arrived in Prague.
I did manage to keep that quiet - it was submitted back in October.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you Leon. I really enjoyed building Tregonning. It is on a removable board within its case and one  day I intend to get around to building another in case model so the two can be interchangeable.

So am I, Leon!  I have a train set room that's a good 16' x 10'.  My present layout, which is fantastic fun, is 4' x 2'6".  The layout which used to fill the room is slowly being reduced in size.  I'll not be surprised if it ends up diminishing to vanishing point.

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.

Martin, I just received my "N Gauge Journal". Congratulations! My last post was certainly timely, and the publication of your article confirms my good judgement!   :D

I just got my N Gauge Journal - great article, Martin!

Like Leon, it looks like we're a bit behind the times here in the USA. I think the competition deadline has already expired!

Tregonning made up for it though!

Bertie sneeks off sometimes when we arenít looking and he does lke to visit different railways.
Great photo - where did you get that orange bay window VW?

I've had it quite some time, It's plastic and I'm not sure where I bought it but it says "miNis" on the underside.
