Worth a squint.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Thanks, Mick! I'd missed this in my trawl through the week's listings. Hopefully, it will brighten up a pretty thin week...

Cheers,

Chris

Many thanks, Mick.

All the very best.

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.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

In my time with Network Rail I have walked many a mile and through tunnels and inspected bridges and viaducts on this line so it will certainly be of interest. Many thanks for the lookout!

Could have done without the 'Spice Girl' fans in the latest episode but, for me, this series has proved a little gem in the normal rubbishy TV schedules. Epic scenery and a great one to watch for anyone considering a rural Scottish setting for a layout.
