I missed this when it was posted because I was away and have been really delighted to catch up with it today.  Many years ago I was based in Peterhead for a while and my motorcycle and I got to know this part of the country rather well.  Your absolutely splendid layout is an excellent representation of the Banffshire landscape.

Many thanks and best wishes.

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.

Terrific modelling Vigo. I like it a lot!

Like others here, I can put my hand up as being a derivative of the modelled area - at least partly as my mum comes from a farm just outside Fraserburgh.

It looks like your layout is pretty much complete. What's next?

Latest developments at Inverduff.

I decided that the stone built station I had was a bit dull and lifeless. I appreciate that the station at Macduff on which this layout is based was itself a bit dull and lifeless but I wanted something with a bit more... something to it so I looked at the other stations in the area and cobbled some of the best bits together and came up with a sort of amalgam of them all.

I think overall this one looks better than a simple stone building and it adds a bit of colour too. I'm in the process of building a new more convincing front wall for it but that's for later in the week when I have more time.

I've finally managed to get my hands on some typical Scottish rolling stock items, OTA timber wagons. Plentiful in 00 if you like things massively oversized and out of scale but these kits by SlimRails are the only ones I've ever seen in N. I like them and any layout based in Scotland HAS to have some, it should be a law.


I've acquired a few more vehicles too and about a dozen assorted PW and railway staff figures that need planting around the layout but as above, these are for later in the week when I have more time available for playing.

Thanks for looking.

Great looking station. The added colour certainly does lift the scene.  :thumbsup:

Like the timber wagons as well.

Since OTA's are designed to carry timber, I thought I'd load some logs onto them.




...and plant the PW staff while I was there.

I see you've nicked a Matilda 2 tank from Early WW2, that would have to be the one at Bovington painted up in the colours of MAJ. ( T / LT. COL. ) HENRY R. B. FOOTE, D.S.O. ROYAL TANK REGIMENT for actions 27TH May. 15TH. June 1942. At which he got the Victoria Cross.

 (My Granddad was RSM at the Time).

Other than that...Very nice modelling.. :thumbsup:
