Bonjour Derek,

Love the old TGV, brings back memories. Will get one, one day when we move and have room for train leg stretching.

Cheers weave  :beers:

One of your wagons has shifted by the way  ;)

Thank you for the film, Derek.

It was good to see two trains running at the same time.

Great progress!

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

 :hellosign: Ok, hope you like the video ?. Life is being a right roller coaster ride at the moment but definite progress in the right direction. Unfortunately the scenic side of the layout must wait for now but running trains is most certainly No 1. Work is taking me all over Cornwall to help out as the Summer uplift kicks in but a meal break in St Austell means an added bonus as this picture shows the location of the buses to the station


Taken from behind the main car park shows short HST set about to depart for Penzance.
      Father's Day brought more goodies


GF observation coach in lined Maroon, ok LMS but no problem it's the start of a new train  :D , my eldest son bought me a late 60s Coach to add to the MK.1s for my birthday.
The



The kit's to build are also growing, more fun to look forward to.
Last but certainly not least


TGV Sud-Est from Kato, what a superb model, over 10 years sat in the box, just ran, only one complaint an absolute  :censored: to couple those ten coaches but rated on the same level as the Pendolino or the Kato 500.
    Thanks for looking and any comments always welcome
       regards Derek.
