It's raining today so I thought I'd do some modelling and decided to show you my worbench. Here's a ...

Hi!

Thank you for all the nice comments! Yes the loco is no.1419 by Hornby. It's a really sweet-running engine I bought at Porthmadoc on the Ffestiniog Railway in 2005.

Best Wishes,
Tom

Hi! The table was built using the "L-girder" principle first used by Linn Westcott of Model Railroader magazine in the early 60's by screwing together two 1"X4" boards forming an "L" to which the legs are attached. The L's are then joined together with horizontal joists...

Hi! Thank you all for your nice comments! I work in HO/OO scale in that very sense of the word! I enjoy British, American and Continental railways so I intend to try to make the railway capable of running all of them as convincingly as possible, obviously not at the same time. All curves are 24"...
