Seconded!

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.

A long time ago I spent a New Years Eve weekend in Polperro which some of you may know is a 'car free' village i.e. you have to park up outside the village and walk to where you are staying. At the time (and I don't know if the tradition continues) the entire village dressed up in fancy dress for the New Years Eve and hit the pubs. I was dressed as a mad doctor c/w white coat, stethoscope etc and had an absolute riot that night. Anyway, to the point of this ramble.................

My memories of Cornwall were the colours seemed brighter and sharper than anywhere I'd seen before or since (and it wasn't the beer goggle effect) so, to my mind, you are capturing the essence of that place which borders England, Martin. Keep up the great work ;D

Iíve been fiddling around with the vegetable garden at the rear of the small goods yard


Iíve added the you g chap doing a bit of tidying whilst his father looks on. Iíve also added a little bench with the young ladís girlfriend chatting with her friend.
The grey hose is a trial but I donít think it really looks good and is too thick but I think that the wheelbarrow looks ok.
Sorry that the loading gauge rather dominates the photograph.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Looking good and very effective, although I have to agree with your comments about the hose. Is the car an old Humber?
David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Good question. I know not.

 :wave:

All looks really good Martin, and I am loving how you are adding the little people. Not just here, but round the creamery and houses.  :D  :thumbsup:  :D

If you don't mind, I would like to add a lady chatting over the fence (wall in my case) to someone working the allotments. The wheelbarrow looks fab, and is positioned spot on, but if you don't mind me saying, perhaps move the girl chatting over the fence closer to her friend on the bench, so she doesn't have to shout. (as who knows who might hear the gossip they are sharing  ;) )

Re the hose, I did see somewhere someone using thin solder for hoses at a filling station. Easy to coil and shape, and takes paint easily.

All best wishes
Kevin

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Iíve removed the hose and will rethink that one.
And Iíve moved the young woman on the pavement a little closer to her froend so that they can gossip happily.
Plus, Iíve added another onlooker casting a critical gaze over the garden and Iíve given the gardeners a compost bin.
Taking a leaf from Kevinís book, the people are just tacky waxed in position for now so that I can alter them slightly if need be.


I think I must have moved the phone a little as the photo is just a bit blurred. However, you can get the idea I think.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Good spot, David. I reckon it might be a Humber Imperial :hmmm:

An allotment with a great atmosphere and no manure in sight! :D  What are the large brown things, award winning melons?
