Thanks Caz. Iíll start searching.
Iíd like an orange and white one like Bertie on my layouts.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I thought it was German made but could not think of the brand name. A search on eBay Germany might find one?

I havenít really had Tregonning out for a few months so thought Iíd give it a run and see if I can make a few little improvements.

This is a quiet corner with a local enthusiast photographing the newly arrived 64xx pannier.
Iíve added a little chap sitting reading his newspaper on a small stile over the wall.
I think a small van on the roadway behind the small hut would add to the scene. That area is a bit empty I think.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Wonderful to see Tregonning again, Martin.  I had been missing it.

That's a particularly nice photograph; thank you very much.

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.

Tregonning plus my little Wadebridge Boxfile layout have been invited to Falmouth MRC Open Day tomorrow.
Here they are in the conservatory waiting to go into the car a bit later.
Wonít take me long to set up!

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Excellent, Martin. I hope that all goes well. I'm sure both layouts will show other railway modellers what can be achieved in a small space.

Tregonning and I are off to Bodmin MRS Show on Saturday and Sunday so I thought Iíd better give the layout a check over and add a few long awaited items (eg telegraph poles and lamp posts).
Anyway, here are a couple of shots :

Iíve tidied up the allotment a bit and altered the position (slightly) of the lady on the bench so that she appears to be chatting more naturally to her friend.
Iíve noticed that the other lady (in the brown top) seems to be in a bit of a huff!
Iíve blu tacked the man with the push chair to see if it looks ok. Iím not entirely sure and does the pushchair itself look too modern (or wonít it show to the naked eye)?

Hereís 6412 passing the station on a local freight. I think that the Scammel Scarab works well in that position?

Iíve added this lady and child who appear to be in a hurry (the lady is holding onto her hat so perhaps itís windy). Iíve also added a little more moss on to the roof of the old, abandoned scout hut. Hopefully a local appeal to raise money for its restoration will be successful.

And Iíve tidied up the front of the pub (and added a street lamp). Larry Poldory is sneaking in for a pint though Iím not sure he looks quite right there?
The chap reading his newspaper appears un concerned.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

All looks okay to me, including the pushchair.  :thumbsup: Enjoy the show.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Superb detailing, Martin :goggleeyes:
At first glance I thought Larry Poldory had a green mohican hair style ;)
