They are 3D printed parts from a small company which produces some nifty small scenic items.

I saw them at the exhibition the other day and immediately thought of a use for them. :thumbsup:

Fortunately there is road access too, so Mr. and Mrs. Bealman can arrive in the comfort of a somewhat retro taxi.

That progress is indeed replicating the big railway.
Steam will be displaced by electric traction.

Excellent work by the way.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The local paparazzi are on the trail of the legendary Mr. and Mrs. @Bealman , but no luck so far.

Bus stops I have a-plenty, somewhere there is an ancient Greenmax kit with McDonalds stickers... What else? Aha, N scale shopping trolleys, we'll have to go all Rule 1 on those as your actual metal shopping trolleys littering the vicinity of supermarkets just do not happen in Japan.  :hmmm:

Absolutely fabulous!

I think I'll buy shares in a manufacturer of disposable chopsticks; ought to be a nice little earner...

Many thanks and all 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.
