On Wednesday I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Tooting, specifically Jane's Trains who had the Metcalfe kits that I needed to carry on the construction of the scenic break and the missing retaining walls and single track tunnel mouth entrance were built on Thursday starting in the afternoon after spending the morning at the Epping Ongar railway on track maintenance.
Friday was spent (playing) Testing the new Thompson coaches, and very nice they are too, and on Saturday I got on with the scenic break, having decided that I would be built in 3 separate sections that could be removed should I have to move the layout. the first section was the raised roadway across the terminal station board



I used a combination of balsa wood and some of the original expanded polystyrene to make 3 robust structures, the other 2 being the roadway down to the coal yard and the raised roadway above the entrance to the fiddle yard





there are now only a few bits to do, largely adding parapet walls and pedestrian pavement, but I am pleased with the way it has turned out



Even as it is the new scenic break is a vast improvement on the previous structure

Regards,

Alex

Looking really good.
You are obviously a fan of Metcalfe kits which work really well on your layout.

That looks absolutely splendid, Alex.  A proper job!

The balsa, polystyrene and card are, I expect, rather lighter than the materials you work with on the Epping Ongar Railway!  I've not visited this line yet, but I look forward to going some time.  I understand that there are interesting steam locomotives there.

Finally, thank you for the photographs of your layout and please keep them coming.

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.
