Looks absolutely fine to me, Martin. Glad to see the curved stone wall sections coming in useful. (Which reminds me, I need to buy a few, too.)

Hi Martin,

I agree with Chris. Looks good.

I know it's from the Dark Side but saw this. Forgetting the great gates, it looks OK to me on the curve.....

I think it will be OK, once you turn it on its side!
With kind regards

Nowt wrong with a level crossing on a curve!  :thumbsup:

I think a level crossing is a good idea, Martin.  An overbridge would require a fearsome approach gradient.  Here is a picture showing a level crossing on a curve but please don't try the stunt!

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.

Thank you everyone for your comments. A level crossing on a curve it will be.
The old cricket pavillion (near the blue bus) will become the local scout/cub hq.
No work on the railway today as we’ve been busy on the allotment and getting out VW camper (Bertie) ready for Summer with a spruce up - having passed its MOT last week.


Anyway, a few pictures of Tregonning. First a pannier coming off the branch from Pontsmill with a short china clay train. The van contains high quality, bagged china clay:

And two views of activity at the creamery. A prarie tank shunts wagons (note the brake van left on the branch line). The single milk tanker is being steam cleaned internally at the cleaning gantry. The two wagons are being loaded with fresh milk.

And a view towards the creamery across the road. Note the proximity of the cottages to the factory. The prarie tank is now on the branch line:


Still a bit of detailing to be done in this area but I am getting there.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

More great photos. That camper looks in great condition.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Thank you, Martin, for the latest excellent set of photos., including Bertie. Do you have an N Scale model in the same colour scheme?

Yes, Bertie certainly looks well-loved.  Have you had him long?  He has a very 'seventies colour scheme as well.  I remember a lot of orange then.  And brown!

Thanks John. We’ve had him for 13 years. Luckily, prior to us he had only 2 previous owners who looked after him well.

Thanks Chris. No, I have an N Scale camper but in blue and white.

Thank you, Martin. I thought Oxford Models had made a VW Camper in orange and white but, it seems, only in 1:76 Scale. I need to check my 1:148 pair of VW camper vans.
