See you there Martin I will be helping Mike with his latest Cornish clay dries layout.  :thumbsup:
I will be running some of my stock for a bit of variety so we might see some through traffic from Tor Bay and Port Perran/Trepol Bay  ;)

I hope to make it Martin, and we can have a chin-wag/catch-up.  Thanks for posting the details.

Treharry St Martin is all set up and ready for tomorrow.
We had a slight problem this evening with a loose wire which was very frustrating. However,  we eventually managed to trace the problem and rectify it.
All working beautifully now.

I’ll get round to fixing it drekkly me ‘ansome.

Many thanks, Martin, for these super photographs.

I've not been to a model railway exhibition for years (12, I think), but I'm sure that I should enjoy this one. It all looks very civilised.

The new layout is looking particularly fine - an incredible achievement in such a short time.

And I like that L&SWR steam railmotor!

Best wishes.

John

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 1930s to the 1950s.
