  3. The English language is really stupidly complex sometimes: I was thinking the BBC is really scraping the barrel if it is going to do a competition about the UK's best sewerage systems. But apparently, it's about needle and thread.

  4. Just thought I'd give a heads-up to our fellow rmweb member Rivercider, and his superb book "South Wales Railways in the 1980s" Firstly though, I must apoligise most humbly to him - the book completely slipped under my radar! Ooops. Anyhow, I ordered my copy last week, and have picked it up daily since. Kevin has captured some superb images, and his captions and accompanying notes are really informative. I'll shortly be ordering a copy of his book on West Country Railways too. Well done good sir. I'll get my copy signed, when we're allowed to go to exhibitions again. https://www.google.co

  5. On a dodgy website I once used to visit, the private inter-member message button was carefully marked "Whisper". No one forgot to use it more than once....

  7. A polling card with my name on it just dropped through the door. It was accompanied by a load of kindling - sorry "electoral literature" - from a number of candidates. All I can say is that this little lot couldn't have arrived on a more appropriate morning ... .

  8. You have to wonder about the quality of the algorithms used by internet advertisers when someone who achieved notoriety by getting sea-sick aboard a boat that was tied to the bank on the Thames finds himself inundated with adverts for cruises.

  24. I thought that I was the one that would get sent to the naughty step for pointing out that the 'Status' facility was for fun/daft/current news comments and not a dating service. Nope. So my status is intact (hopefully).

  25. Please use the Message icon/button on people's profiles to send a Private Message rather than the 'Write a public message to member' box that you keep using. It seems everyone but the intended recipient gets to read it! I know it's hypocritical of me to send you the message this way but it's done to illustrate the problem.

  28. Have been working on a PDK LNER P1 2-8-2 with the booster. I am now currently waiting for wheels, I do have concerns with pickups as the break rodding is sitting in an awkward spot. But nothing that a bit of modification and experimentation won't do any harm

  29. Hi Thank you for your reply. I love the model. I love Wagon Lits, and Pullman. One of my best friends is Antony Ford, author of many Pullman books and a world expert on Pullman, and Wagon Lits. Can you advise me, I would like to consider making this kit. I am used to modelling in wood. I have made many model ships, including Amati. These include all the cannons rigging etc But I have never used soldered metal. Do you think , in your opinion that this kit is within my capability. I have attached some images of my models. Look forward to hearing from you.

  30. Its April Fools Day tomorrow. I HATE April Fools Day, with all the cack-handed, oh-so-funny "jokes" that get paraded about... Perhaps the 1st of April should be deleted from the calendar?

  32. If you are talking "Tingha and Tucker", it's definitely Willy. incidentally, the "wombat" in my username comes from Willy Wombat as I am exasperated that people routinely mispronounce my surname "Wiles" as "Willies". I mean, how often do you travel at 30 Millies an hour? So I figured if I'm now a Willy I might as well be a Wombat. Woomerang Boomerang...

  34. The two high arc roof LBSCR vehicles seen here on this E. J. Bedford photo of the up Newhaven Boat train at Lewes post 1889 remain unidentified. I have found a photo of what is described as a Midland horsebox kit (photos below), but there seems to be some doubt about who the kit's maker is, or was. There seems to be a similarity (compare photos), given that the Bedford photo is taken at an acute angle and the arc of the Midland vehicle is not a smooth continuous arc and its planking is vertical, not horizontal as on the Brighton vans. I've never found a drawing or Diag. number or a more detail
